Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
We have an upcoming test demonstration with the Army on contract W56KGU-20-C-0033. We have held an experimental license for operation at our Cincinnati, OH business location that just expired at the end of September. We applied for a renewal of the same exact license prior to the expiration, but were just notified that the renewal was rejected for the Cincinnati, OH location due to potential interference with a NASA earth station. We are requesting a STA to support our Army contract. Testing is scheduled between 10/19/2021 and 11/23/2021.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  The objective of the operations is to develop new waveform technology for communications in a military setting, under Army contract W56KGU-20-C-0033. Over the air testing of the GIRD prototype radios will be conducted to demonstrate to the Army customer that the objectives of the contract have been met.
