Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
We are developing nanosatellites for weather remote sensing using custom power, computing, radio, and weather radar electronics. We need to demonstrate these custom systems in flight. We only need a limited period of operation to perform these in-flight tests and need the simplified process and cost of the STA experimental license.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  The purpose of this satellite is to test our computing, solar, battery, power management, inertial measurement, thermal measurement, radio, and weather radar (scatterometer) subsystems in flight. UHF frequency will be used to monitor satellite condition through periodic telemetry downlinks and to uplink test commands to the satellite. Ku-band frequency will be used to measure low-resolution (10km x 120km resolution cell) backscatter of radar signals off the surface of the ocean and land. This will be used to demonstrate retrieval of winds over the surface of the ocean using the weather radar system and to compare the radar return to the return of other scatterometers over land.

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.
