Give the following information of person who can best handle inquiries pertaining to this application:  
Last Name: Beyer
First Name: Timothy
Title: Project Leader
Phone Number: 5713043821

Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
The Aerospace Corporation will be conducting short-term satellite communication tests that require use of custom transmitters for the duration of the test.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  The Special Temporary Authority is for a series of satellite communication tests to be conducted at The Aerospace Corporation facilities in El Segundo, CA and Chantilly, VA. There will be a total of four custom Ku-band (13.75-14.5 GHz) transmitters, each transmitting to a satellite transponder. At any given time up to three will be in El Segundo and up to three in Chantilly, but the total number of transmitters will not exceed four. The transmit bandwidth will not exceed 4 MHz. The spectrum of the transmitted signal and the power flux density of the signals will be designed to comply with all transponder requirements. The EIRP of each station will not exceed 60 dBWi, but typically will be lower.

Certification
Neither the applicant nor any other party to the application is subject to a denial of Federal benefits that includes FCC benefits pursuant to Section 5301 of the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988, 21 U.S.C. Section 862, because of a conviction for possession or distribution of a controlled substance. The applicant hereby waives any claim to the use of any particular frequency or electromagnetic spectrum as against the regulatory power of the United States because of the prvious use of the same, whether by license or otherwise, and requests authorization in accordance with this application. (See Section 304 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended.) The applicant acknowledges that all statements made in this application and attached exhibits are considered material representations, and that all the exhibits part hereof and are incorporated herein as if set out in full in this application; undersigned certifies that all statements in this application are true, complete and correct to the best of his/her knowledge and belief and are made in good faith. Applicant certifies that construction of the station would NOT be an action which is likely to have a significant environmental effect. See the Commission's Rules, 47 CFR1.1301-1.1319.
