Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
Blue Origin will be testing the Vertical Take-Off and Landing technology of a Remote Operated Aircraft (ROA). As part of the FAA Certificate of Authorization (COA) procedure, the aircraft is required to have a lost-link emergency/abort shut-down procedure. A communication/telemetry link to the aircraft allows for normal and safe operations of the vehicle. However, there will be an independent, non-destructive, commercial off the shelf (COTS), flight termination system (FTS) aboard the aircraft. In the event of a lost communication link, departure from the planned flight path, or a commanded emergency abort, the FTS will shut down the propulsion units (terminate thrust).

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Testing the Vertical Take-Off and Landing technology of a Remotely Operated Aircraft (ROA).
