Phone Number: 8013695425

Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
The STA will enable Fortem Technologies to test its low weight, low power prototype radar in order to refine its design before we apply for fcc certification and licensing of a detection and avoidance system. This STA is necessary to support work we propose to conduct at the proposed locations for a limited period of time.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  To test prototype ultra-small SWaP-C radar devices for commercial applications designed to detect and avoid airborne vehicles. We were advised by the FCC and FAA to test at 15.4-15.7 GHz which is allocated for Aeronautical Radionavigation. The tests will be directed by the engineering team at Fortem Technologies, which has operated in the past successfully under similar STA and Experimental Licenses. See, for example: WK9XPC, WL9XFD, and WK9XMW. This ultra-small SWaP-C radar has been designed to enable UAVs to detect and avoid other airborne vehicles, thus allowing them to safely fly Beyond Line of Sight. We will need to perform testing near our new company headquarters in Pleasant Grove, Ut and at two locations near Virginia Tech University. This testing will be directed by the engineering team which joined Fortem Technologies when the technology was purchased from IMSAR; the team has managed STA and Experimental Licenses in the past.

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.
