Metrology is defined by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM) as "the science of measurement, embracing both experimental and theoretical determinations at any level of uncertainty in any field of science and technology".

The role of a metrology calibration technician is closely connected to the precise science of measurement. They have a wide range of responsibilities within a laboratory environment; most importantly, they apply their knowledge of measurement science and mathematics to properly calibrate all inspection, measurement, and test equipment to ensure that such equipment meets all requirements for accuracy and precision. Other responsibilities performed by a metrology calibration technician include collecting, analyzing, and summarizing any data obtained from the calibration process, as well as accurately preparing calibration reports, adapting calibration equipment for new or unusual measurement tasks, and correcting any measurement errors as soon as they have been identified.

  1. Serves as the focal point for test equipment in the electrical lab. Test equipment includes, but is not limited to, power supplies, multi-meters, function generators, oscilloscopes, frequency counters, audio analyzers, power meters and power sensors.
  2. Coordinates test equipment calibration with the Calibration Lab or external vendors.
  3. Assesses and evaluates new developments in electrical test equipment and metrology, and provide recommendations for review.
  4. Familiar with Keysight (or equivalent) RF test equipment including signal generators, spectrum analyzers, noise figure meters, vector signal generators/analyzers, network analyzers, etc.
  5. Familiar with a variety of auxiliary equipment including attenuators, mixers, resistance and capacitance decade boxes, frequency doublers, etc.
  6. Maintains the system to track test equipment and calibration requirements to including maintaining accurate calibration schedules and operational procedures.
  7. Performs test equipment configuration, programming, and test instruction/documentation.
  8. Applies test methodology and equipment knowledge to improve, recommend changes, and provide solutions for the Capabilities Roadmap.
  9. Identifies obsolete test equipment for disposal and make recommendations for replacements corresponding to the needed capabilities and requirements.
  10. Follow and apply standard operating procedures (SOPs) for Total Asset Management (TAM).
  11. Assist with test equipment training as directed by the customer.
  12. Develop system documentation including any documents pertaining to hardware and software for the automated test systems.
  13. Update the testing program style guide/GUI development/architecture for use in development of software on existing and next generation test and measurement systems.
  14. Develop an Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Plan for the existing and next generation automated test systems. This includes discussions/procedures for preventative maintenance, calibration cycles, and potential planned product improvements for hardware and software.
