Tonopah Test Range air traffic controller job 12/04/2014

Air traffic controller job at the TTR

This looks pretty routine for an ATC job, other than maybe not every controller has access to the FLIP these days. (The document has FOUO status.]
Also not every ATC needs top secret clearance.

This line caught my eye:

On occasion must be able to work weekends and holidays.

There is this theory that tests of a sensitive nature are done on holidays, when there are less eyeballs around the range. The problem with that
theory is yes, there are less people on base, but you also have the potential for yahoos at the border.

Of some interest is PAE runs the air operation at the not so secret drone base in Djibouti.
