Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
Pursuant to Part 5 of the Commission's Rules (47 C.F.R. 5.61(c)), HawkEye 360, Inc. ("HE360") respectfully requests authority for a three (3) month extension, i.e., until September 1, 2019, of its existing special temporary authority (STA), 1703-EX-ST-2018 (granted Nov. 9, 2018, as amended). In the previously filed STA, the FCC approved HE360's request until June 1, 2019 to communicate in certain frequencies in the S-band (space-to-Earth) from the Pathfinder experimental satellites to the HE360 Herndon, Virginia, ground station. HE360 is working to transition communications in the requested frequency bands to the Kongsberg Satellite Services (KSAT) ground station at Svalbard, Norway, before the STA expires on June 1, 2019. However, due to timelines associated with the installation, commissioning, and operational testing of new physical architecture at Svalbard, Norway, there is a schedule risk that the relevant facilities at the KSAT Svalbard ground station will not be ready by June 1, 2019. For this reason, HE360 requests a modest three-month extension of its existing authorization until September 1, 2019. All other parameters specified in the prior application remain the same and HE360 hereby incorporates them by reference. HE360 has initiated coordination with the relevant federal agencies.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Communications (space-to-Earth) with the three Pathfinder satellites. See above.

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.
