Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
SwRI seeks to conduct a limited set of tests for several days during the period September 1, 2015 through February 28, 2016, to obtain real-world data samples of the characteristics of narrowband, frequency hopping HF transmissions. The results of the tests will be used to determine the need for continued research and development in this area. Experimental authority is required to conduct such tests, and a six-month STA term will provide SwRI flexibility for scheduling the actual test dates.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Testing to obtain real-world data samples of the characteristics of narrowband, frequency hopping HF transmissions. SwRI seeks to obtain real-world data samples of the characteristics of narrowband, frequency hopping HF transmission techniques for both single channel detection, angle of arrival, and time differences of arrival. The evaluation will include an assessment of the propagation and functionality of such transmissions and their ability to communicate under varying conditions.
