Give the following information of person who can best handle inquiries pertaining to this application:  
Last Name: Ridgway
First Name: Richard
Title: Director, ElectroScience Laboratory
Phone Number: 6144026853

Explanation
Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
We are funded by the Office of Naval research to develop and test a new radio waveform for communications. We would like a six month license to test the waveform using a commercial software defined radio (SDR).

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  The waveform (Peaky FSK) allows for low data rate communications (25 Kb/s) with low probability of intercept. It has peak transmission power of 1 W but low average power of 1 mW. due to the peaky nature of the waveform. Each pulse at a specific frequency provides one or more bits of information.

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.
