Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
This application is an extension of previously approved STA File No. 1869-EX-ST-2020 ************************** Flight experiment uses common S-Band, C-Band frequencies for Command Control (C2) operations. The UAV will fly at multiple altitudes ranging from 0 to 30kft MSL

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Flight experiment uses common S-Band, C-Band frequencies for Command Control (C2) operations. This STA application is required for experimental flight testing at Tyndall AFB, FL in Kratos’ support of AFRL/RQ Wright Patterson under the TETRAS IDIQ contract FA2487-19-F-5304 Eglin AFB, FL to demonstrate, in a capstone test flight, a sensor network, which is realized through hardware and software development and integration and command and control (C2) of multiple high performance unmanned air vehicles (UAVs), also known as unmanned air systems (UASs).
