Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
An STA is needed for to test and demonstrate the capabilities of Northrop Grummans Freedom 350 and Freedom 450 Wideband Networking Waveform (WNW) and Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW).

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Demonstration of the capabilities of Northrop Grummans Freedom 350 and Freedom 450 Wideband Networking Waveform (WNW) and Soldier Radio Waveform (SRW). Experiments will be conducted to test and demonstrate the concept of deployable WNW and SRW network architecture. The experiments will utilize a Northrop Grumman test and demonstration network that resembles an anticipated architecture of Department of Defense networks used for Command and Control (C2) operations. Requirement is for one frequency between 225-400 MHz for 1.2 MHz bandwidth; two frequencies between 400-450 MHz for 3.0 MHz maximum bandwidth; and one frequency between 450-2000 MHz for 30. MHz maximum bandwidth. Frequencies have been chosen that are believed available for this purpose, but there is complete flexibility within each of the three ranges.
