Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
This STA request is to transmit a radar type signal on a mobile unmanned aerial system (UAS) platform to test a detect and avoid capability for a mobile UAS platform. Many UASs in operation today do not have any detect and avoid capability and run the risk of hitting stationary and mobile objects. This research will focus on adding a low-cost, light weight, short-range radar to a UAS (i.e., less than 55 lbs) to help minimize UAS-to-fixed obstacle and UAS-to-mobile collisions.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  The purpose of these operations will be to test a low-cost, light weight, short-range radar that is installed on a test UAS (i.e., 3DR Robotics X8 UAS). A small target UAS will be instrumented with an aluminum spherical ball, that will provide a uniform radar cross section (RCS) to the radar. The target UAS will remain in a hover and the radar equipped UAS will slowly approach the target UAS and hover at fixed ranges (i.e, 200, 100, 50, 20 meters). Data will collected on-board the radar equipped UAS and the data will be processed. The primary objective of these first tests will be to characterize the detection range.
