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 prior to requesting further licensing. We were advised by the FCC and FAA to test at 15.4-15.7 GHz which is allocated for Aeronautical Radionavigation. We have more testing to complete in this frequency band before we apply for FCC certification and licenses for our product. This is necessary to support work we are currently doing for an AFRL contract on drone technology, work with NASA on drone detect and avoid, and additional work and demos of drones we are proposing to the US DoD (Air Force and Army) and others.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Testing radar. To test its low weight, low power prototype radar on drones. 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. This testing will be directed by the Fortem engineering team; the team has managed STA and Experimental Licenses in the past. 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. The current application covers initial testing from the ground. Subsequent applications will be added for on wing testing. 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.
