Title: Spectrum Manager - Sr
Phone Number: 620-332-0432

Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
An STA is needed to obtain an authorization to commence intermittent temporary demonstrations and operations soonest possible. A final decision regarding long term operations at these locations is still pending.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  To demonstrate the IMASTER synthetic aperture radar. The purpose is to demonstrate the IMASTER synthetic aperture radar capabilities as part of an overall demonstration and evaluation of a new multi-mission aircraft. The aircraft will fly and operate the I-Master radar between 5 and 17 thousand feet around the requested locations. The radar antenna is mounted on the aircraft and the radiation beam is tightly steerable to focus on specific points on the ground to mitigate unwanted radiation in sensitive directions. The radar will be used to image the ground during events.
