Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
Please see Exhibit 1. Leidos has developed a next generation radio for the railroads. The radio prototype has been tested at the Transportation Technology Center (TTC) in Pueblo, CO in a remote location on test tracks. TTC and Norfolk Southern railroad want to perform tests on an operational track in Virginia to assess the ability to send information between the front of the train and the end of the train. The prototype radio is not FCC certified. We are seeking a STA. If the test are successful, we will start the certification process.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Please See Exhibit 1. TTC and Norfolk Southern want to assess performance in an operational environment (with canyons, tunnels, etc.) TTC and Norfolk Southern want to assess performance in an operational environment (with canyons, tunnels, etc.) The test will be run within the 450 MHz railroad frequency allocation. The maximum transmit output power is two watts. The tests will be conducted over a one to three day period. We would like to run the tests as soon as possible. The days listed below are candidate dates. If the STA is approved we will coordinate with the FCC, TTC and Norfolk Southern to choose firm dates.
