Cpl Stuart Evans, HMCS Regina ~

Leading Seaman (LS) Jefren Liu, a Naval Combat Information Operator (NCIOP) aboard HMCS Regina, is passionate about her job.

The Toronto, Ontario, native says anything combat related has NCIOPs in the front row of the Operations Room.

“The Commanding Officer gives authorization for weapon release in accordance with his rules of engagement based on the information we provide to him – above water warfare, surface warfare and underwater warfare,” she explains. “During peacetime sailing, we are the eyes of the ship to monitor long-range air traffic and long-range surface traffic, as well as anti-collision reporting. During a search and rescue situation, we are the link to report back to Canada regarding the exact situation report and casualty states.”

When asked for any pointers to potential recruits in the trade, she said, “Attention to detail would be the key to success in this trade. This is a fighting trade. You can experience any other trades in the civilian world except for operations trades. We are the trade that pieces everything together. It requires a lot of exercises and training, but when it comes to real life scenario it’s only cooler than you thought.”
