Title: Research Engineer II
Phone Number: 404-407-8727

Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
The Georgia Tech Research Corporation is working with Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to demonstrate a phase stability receive test with a high gain deployable aperture.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Demonstration of a phase stability receive test with a high gain deployable aperture. The applicant seeks a STA for the purpose of demonstrating this phase stability test. GTRI does not have an internal location in which the system can be fully assembled and tested and therefore requires a temporary experimental license to radiate before delivery to the U.S. Government. The testing will take place over a 6 month time period from February 1, 2017 through August 1, 2017

Callsign: WK9XUS
Class of Station: FX
Nature of Service: Experimental

Requested Period of Operation
Operation Start Date: 02/01/2017
Operation End Date: 08/01/2017

List below transmitting equipment to be installed (if experimental, so state) if additional rows are required, please submit equipment list as an exhibit:  
Manufacturer Model Number No. Of Units Experimental
Agilent Vector Signal Generator MXG N5182B 1 No
