Last Name: Cornejo
First Name: Allende
Title: Drone Engineer
Phone Number: 9195970892

Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
Licenses are needed to secure communications during live and post-produced drone racing events. Unlicensed spectrum cannot be controlled and interference would limit the ability to hold events.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  Communications during live and post-produced drone racing events. Drone racing requires a real time, low latency video feed be broadcast locally to a pilot, for navigation of the drone. The drone feed it also received at points throughout the venue for audience consumption.
