Rule Name:License - Starship Communications and Sensor Operations
To get a job as a Starship Communications and Sensor Operations Officer, the character must obtain a commercial license.

The test is in four parts; Astronomy, Radio Theory, Systems Operations and Radio Operations. To pass a section, the player must make 20 rolls for each section, using Science: Astronomy skill for the first section, Science: Communications skill for the second section, Systems Operations skill for the third section and Radio Operations for the fourth section.

Note that the specific areas of Systems Operations required are as follows:
  • Communications Systems (2 points)
  • Sensor Systems - Air/Space Traffic Control
  • Sensor Systems - Radar
  • Sensor Systems - FTL Sensors

If the testee does not have a two transport point familiarity with Starships, then they will not pass the test.

The cost of the test is Cr400. The cost for a commercial license is Cr2000.

If the test is failed, it may not be taken again for one month and the test cost goes up by Cr1000. If you wait six months to take the test again, then the cost drops back to normal.

There is no equivalent of a private license for this job. Private spaceships are not required to have a communications and sensor operations officer.
