Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
Applicant seeks authority to conduct launch and early orbit phase (LEOP) communications (space-to-Earth) with the three Pathfinder satellites scheduled to be deployed from the Falcon 9 launch vehicle in the 2Q of 2018 (see 0024-EX-CN-2017). Applicant will transmit (space-to-Earth) using 4 MHz channels in the following three frequency bands (one channel for each satellite): 2238-2242 MHz; 2244-2248 MHz; and 2254-2258 MHz. Communications will be with the ground station specified in the above-referenced experimental application, which is located at 196 Van Buren St. #450, Herndon, VA 20171 (38°57'14"N, 77°23'14"W). To allow for potential launch delays, applicant seeks authority to transmit during a 180-day period. Applicant's uplink transmissions are specified in the above-reference application.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Launch and early orbit phase (LEOP) communications (space-to-Earth) with the three Pathfinder satellites scheduled to be deployed from the Falcon 9 launch vehicle in the 2Q of 2018. 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.
