35T (pronounced thirty-five tango using the phonetic alphabet), previously 33W, is the Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) for the United States Army's Military Intelligence Systems Maintainer/Integrator.
To be a 35T, one must have
- a physical profile (PULHES) of 222221 or better,
- normal color vision.
- scoring a minimum of 112 in the aptitude area ST on the ASVAB.
- a high school graduate or equivalent.
- completed a high school algebra course or equivalent
- meet TOP SECRET Security Clearance, and Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) access eligibility requirements.
- soldier and members of immediate family (spouse, parents, brothers, sisters, and children) must be U.S. citizens.
- no record of court-martial.
- no record of conviction by a civil court for any offense other than minor traffic violations.
A 35T performs or supervises unit, direct, or depot support and provides maintenance of Electronic Warfare (EW) subsystems, receiver subsystems, and processing/storage subsystems at fixed stations or remote sites.
- 1 is the basic entry level technician (e.g. 35T1O)
- 2 is a 35T with the rank of Sergeant (E-5)
- 3 is a 35T with the rank of Staff Sergeant (E-6)
- 4 is a 35T with the rank of Sergeant First Class (E-7)
- 5 is a 35T with the rank of Master Sergeant/First Sergeant or Sergeant Major/Command Sergeant Major (E-8 or E-9)
Additional Skill Identifiers
- U2 denotes training as a Shadow Unmanned Aerial Vehicle repair technician.
- U3 denotes training as a Hunter Unmanned Aerial Vehicle repair technician.
- D6 denotes training as a Basic Digital Network Analyst (BDNA)
- IT is skilled in IPDS/TRAC/NISTENCAP Operations.
- 4A is the code for Reclassification Training.
In 1985 the Army split the generalized Electronic Warfare/Intercept Systems Technician 33S MOS into five specializations 33P (Strategic Receiving Subsystems Repairer), 33Q (Strategic Recording Subsystems Repairer), 33R (Aviation Systems Repairer), 33V (Aerial Sensor Repairer), 33T (Tactical Systems Repairer)].
However, on 1 October 1998 the Army recombined the 3 MOSs: 33R (Aviation Systems Repairer), 33T (Tactical Systems Repairer), 33Y (Electronic Warfare/Intercept Strategic Systems Repairer) into one MOS—33W (Electronic Warfare/Intelligence Systems Repairer). This change was prompted due to lack of need in several of the 33 series. By combining all three into one MOS, the Army was able to provide the same support with fewer soldiers and use OJT (on the job training).
On 1 October 2007, the 33W designation was renamed to 35T to group all Military Intelligence MOSs in the same 35 series.
35Ts are trained to perform maintenance tasks associated with electronic warfare equipment and systems. The soldiers are taught about electricity and advanced electronic theory, advanced concept and troubleshooting theory to include basic and advanced computer concepts and advanced troubleshooting skills using the Army's most advanced EW systems. Also taught are the concepts of basic analog and digital electronics repair, communications theory (receivers, recorders, and multiplexing/de-multiplexing, transmission line repair techniques, computer architecture/operating systems fundamentals, automated messaging, and network operations/troubleshooting. Upon completion of training a 35T has all the skills to repair and maintain virtually any electronic system from the tactical to strategic level. As an expert a 35T may be tasked to repair/maintain Transmitters/Transceivers (AN/TLQ-17A, AN/TLQ-17, AN/TLQ-40, AN/TLQ-63); Imagery Analysis systems (AN/TSQ-179(TGS), signal intelligence systems (GR/CS) and (PROPHET), aerial electronic warfare systems (RC-12 Guardrail), or complex/advanced computer systems and networks.
Alpha Company, 305th Military Intelligence Battalion, 111th Military Intelligence Brigade at Fort Huachuca, AZ conducts all 35T training. Alpha Company is composed of both 35T's and 35G's as of March 8th, 2014 due to a Company merge between Alpha and Bravo Company.
The Unmanned Aircraft Systems Training Battalion, also at Fort Huachuca, AZ, conducts additional skill training for the Shadow and Hunter unmanned aircraft systems.
