Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
Systems & Technology Research (STR) is leading an effort on the DARPA Mercury program. The program involves a series of technology maturation tests to be performed by the STR team throughout CY2020-2021 at Fort Devens and Camp Edwards, MA.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Series of technology maturation tests supporting the DARPA Mercury program. Systems & Technology Research (STR) is leading an effort on the DARPA Mercury program. The program involves a series of technology maturation tests to be performed by the STR team throughout CY2020 and 2021 at Fort Devens and Camp Edwards, MA. This test is being conducted as part of the Mercury Program. Mercury is a classified DoD mission which includes the use of several UAVs carrying classified payloads. The UAVs must autonomously fly to predetermined waypoints, hover at those waypoints, and return to base. This effort will be expected to begin in Sep 2020 and extend through August 2021. Several discrete tests are planned throughout the period, each test will last from 2-4 days with week(s) of spacing in between for analysis.
