Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
Copious Imaging is under contract with Hanscom AFB (HBU-M, PSEAG, IBDSS) to integrate a radar with our current WISP 2.1 infrared imagery sensor. Weve acquired and Echodyne Echoguard and a Fortem R30 to begin data collection and test work. Both Radar products require an STA to begin data collection work.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Wed like to use the radars at the Pepperell MA Skydiving facility to track ground and air targets. Well be overlaying the radar data onto the WISP imagery to fuse the data and produce a viable prototype product.

Is a directional antenna (other than radar) used?   No
Exhibit submitted:   No
(a) Width of beam in degrees at the half-power point:  
(b) Orientation in horizontal plane:  
(c) Orientation in vertical plane:  
Will the antenna extend more than 6 meters above the ground, or if mounted on an existing building, will it extend more than 6 meters above the building, or will the proposed antenna be mounted on an existing structure other than a building?   Yes
(a) Overall height above ground to tip of antenna in meters:   20.00
(b) Elevation of ground at antenna site above mean sea level in meters:   50.00
(c) Distance to nearest aircraft landing area in kilometers:  
(d) List any natural formations of existing man-made structures (hills, trees, water tanks, towers, etc.) which, in the opinion of the applicant, would tend to shield the antenna from aircraft: The site is at a small sky diving facility with a runway were aircraft seldomly operate (especially in the sky diving off season (December-April). The radar will not be shielded, but can be manually switched on and off during operation as to avoid any hazardous situations. Site has given their approval for us to operate at the site.
