Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
Spire Global, Inc. (“Spire”) requests experimental special temporary authority (“STA”) for one (1) to-be-deployed Spire LEMUR-2 satellite bus (“LEMUR-2 Satellite”), which will host a payload (KeyW Payload) to be operated by KeyW Corporation (“KeyW”) onboard. Grant of the LEMUR-2 Satellite STA request will allow KeyW to provide valuable demonstration and test data to the United States Air Force in a timely manner.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  The Spire LEMUR-2 satellite bus will host a payload for KeyW. The LEMUR-2 Satellite subject to this STA request will (i) receive commands and software updates and (ii) downlink telemetry and data gathered by the KeyW Payload. Spire notes that the LEMUR-2 Satellite will not contain its typical Automatic Identification System, Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast, and Global Navigation Satellite System Radio Occultation payloads. Instead, this LEMUR-2 Satellite will only contain the KeyW Payload and standard LEMUR-2 Satellite radios and associated hardware. These radios and hardware have already been approved for use by the Commission (see IBFS File No. SAT-AMD-20180102-00001).
