Phone Number: 4018484772

Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
The requested STA will authorize operation of a radio being developed by Leidos suitable for maritime data transfer applications, as well as an experimental radio, manufactured by Kongsberg Seatex AS, whose function is also maritime data transfer. Operations will be conducted in support of a demonstration of autonomous bathymetric data collection (mapping of the sea floor), wherein data is transmitted in real-time, via the aforementioned radios, to a shorebased display and operator station. Having access to these transmitting facilities will allow Leidos to refine its autonomous operations while also returning bathymetric data ashore, immediately after collection, in near real-time. These prototype radios are not FCC certified, and therefore Leidos seeks an STA for these operations. Please See Exhibit 1
