There is a link to an Air Force pdf in the article. What it states as an airforce objective does not tally with a deployment/training/testing role as
Expand collaborative/engagement roles with:
RPA Task Force, Air Staff, Major Commands
DoD government services, NTSB, FAA, Department of
Homeland Security, Industry, etc.
Apply cross-service lessons learned
Support standardizing operational procedures.
National Airspace System
Industry? What do they mean by industry? Private spying? Private airstrikes?
Actually, that EXACTLY tallies with what Zaphod said. The job appears to be a project level manager for drones, maybe higher. The applicant will be
expected to be able to meet and interact with the military side (1), the civilian side (2), actually put together the information he gets into some
sort of coherent picture (3), write and test operating procedure (4) and keep them out of the way of airplanes (5).
"industry" in this case means the aerospace industry, the guys designing and building the drones. You would sort of have to interact with these guys
if you're managing a project or group of projects.
