Notes: "1997 CAF Airman Fellowship". Bibliography. Scarce; The term 'In the Dark' has a number of connotations within the air defence environment. Firstly, the air defence operational environment is, by virtue of the equipment used, a darkened one, there is very little light. Therefore, air defence personnel are literally employed - 'In the Dark'. 'In the Dark' is also a radio term used in the air defence environment to advise that the data relating to intermittent radar contacts is being estimated or dead-reckoned. In this context, 'In the Dark' implies unknown factors and uncertainty. Finally, 'In the Dark' reflects the current perceptions that airmen and women of the Air Surveillance Operator mustering have regarding their future employment in the Australian Defence Force Air Defence System (AADS). While the RAAF's Air Surveillance operators are assured a future in the AADS, the full scope of that future and the nature of the tasks they will eventually undertake have yet to be finally determined. In the Dark challenges the current perceptions of traditional employment and questions the relevance of traditional personnel structures in a dynamic, technology-based operational environment. At a time when the entire ADF is faced with personnel reductions and smaller budgets, In the Dark looks at options for the deployment of personnel and capabilities within the AADS to satisfy increasing demands with limited resources.
