           FAA Telecommunications Infrastructure (FTI) Program
           Letter of Intent to Order C-Band Satellite Communications Services at
           Designated Locations in Alaska

Dear Mr. Hernandez:

The purpose of this letter is to advise you of the Federal Aviation Administration’s intent to
order C-band satellite communications services at designated locations in Alaska. The sites
are currently part of the FAA’s Alaskan Satellite Telecommunications Infrastructure (ASTI)
program and are listed in Attachment 1 to this letter. To support the process, it is our
understanding that L3Harris Technologies or its selected service provider will need to apply
to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for new C-band earth station licenses at
these locations. In the application to the FCC, L3Harris Technologies or its selected service
provider should identify the database entries (DBEs) and call signs for the FAA sites as a
reference. This information is also provided in Attachment 1.

In addition, the FAA will provide a separate communication to the FCC advising them of
our intent to discontinue use of the FAA-owned ASTI C-band earth stations at the affected

The FAA point-of-contact for this project is:

Mr. Steve Murphy, FTI Implementation Manager
Phone: 603-881-1122

While this initial action addresses the 10 sites listed in Attachment 1, this guidance and
process will apply to future sites for which the FAA may elect to migrate from the FAA-
owned satellite infrastructure to commercial satellite services provided by L3Harris
Technologies and its carrier partners.
