Give the following information of person who can best handle inquiries pertaining to this application:  
Last Name: Christianson
First Name: Mark
Title: Director, Advanced Development Engineering
Phone Number: 623-523-2574

Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
Adding phase modulation overlay to 1090MHz ADS-B squitter transmissions on existing ACSS FAA certified Mode S/ADS-B Out transponder. The current certified transponder does not include the phase modulation overlay function

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Demonstrate phase modulation link performance using Lynx NGT-9000D and NGT-9000RD multilink transponders. This will include validating reception of Phase modulation encoded parameter data, DF-17 format (transmitted by an NGT-9000RD unit installed at a fixed Engineering lab workstation) is received and decoded by an NGT-9000D unit installed in the ACSS King Air during flight test operation. Testing will also include demonstrating air to ground link performance of phase modulation encoded parameter data (transmitted from the NGT-9000D unit installed in the ACSS King Air) is received and decoded by the NGT- 9000RD unit installed at the fixed location Engineering lab workstation. Flight tests are to confirm link performance of phase modulation. Each flight test duration is expected to require between 0.5 to 1.0 hours and local ATC will be contacted prior to conducting flight test activity to coordinate on flight test start/stop times.

Certification
Neither the applicant nor any other party to the application is subject to a denial of Federal benefits that includes FCC benefits pursuant to Section 5301 of the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, 21 U.S.C. Section 862, because of a conviction for possession or distribution of a controlled substance. The applicant hereby waives any claim to the use of any particular frequency or electromagnetic spectrum as against the regulatory power of the United States because of the prvious use of the same, whether by license or otherwise, and requests authorization in accordance with this application. (See Section 304 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended.) The applicant acknowledges that all statements made in this application and attached exhibits are considered material representations, and that all the exhibits part hereof and are incorporated herein as if set out in full in this application; undersigned certifies that all statements in this application are true, complete and correct to the best of his/her knowledge and belief and are made in good faith. Applicant certifies that construction of the station would NOT be an action which is likely to have a significant environmental effect. See the Commission's Rules, 47 CFR1.1301-1.1319.
