AG_rating_symbolGeneral Description
 Aerographer's mates are the Navy's meteorological and oceanographic experts, trained in the science of meteorology and physical oceanography.  They also learn to use instruments that     monitor weather characteristics such as air pressure, temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction.  They then distribute this data to aircraft, ships and shore activities. 









What They Do
The duties performed by AGs include:

  • collecting, recording and analyzing weather and oceanographic information

  • preparing up-to-date weather maps and oceanographic data
  • ​issuing weather forecasts and warnings
  • conducting weather/oceanographic briefings

  • using, testing, calibrating and performing minor and preventive maintenance on meteorological instruments including satellite receivers

  • preparing balloon-carried instruments for flight, evaluating and analyzing data received

  • operating, programming and maintaining computers and related equipment


Working Environment
Men and women in the AG rating perform their duties in clean, comfortable, office-like environments.  Their work is usually mental, is done closely with others and requires little supervision.


Requirements

  • ASVAB: PAY 97 VE + MK + GS >= 162  -or-  PAY 80 GS + AR + MK >= 165

  • Must have normal color perception

  • Security clearance required.  No exceptions

  • Must be a U.S. Citizen


Notes: Advancement opportunity and career progression are directly linked to a rating's manning level (i.e., personnel in undermanned ratings have greater opportunity than those in overmanned ratings).  Rating conversions will normally only be considered for those who are in appropriately manned or overmanned ratings who seek entry into undermanned ratings.  Please see a career counselor for more information.
