Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
The STA is required to support multiple USDOT, FAA, NASA, and state research initiatives in effective UAS management and situational awareness.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  AIRXOS will be evaluating the efficacy of different radar models in the detection of low-altitude hazards, both airborne and stationary, to safe UAS operation. Under this authorization AIRXOS will collect the field data and demonstrations required for such assessment. Such function is essential to maintaining safe operation of the UAS. Therefore, this testing will collect the field data needed to determine whether these radars meet the necessary performance.
