Please explain in the area below why an STA is necessary:
This STA will be in support of a research project at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. The project is to design control algorithms for multiple unmanned vehicles (both ground and air vehicles) for enclosed spaces (buildings). In order to test the control and communication systems at our facility in an interference-free environment, we plan to use the 3.65 GHz band for our testing. The STA is appropriate because the communication system is necessary for our research and culminates in a technology demonstration. Additionally, the use of this frequency band is needed for only a few months.

Purpose of Operation
Please explain the purpose of operation:  To test and design radios in 3.65-3.7 GHz band. We will be using radios that have been designed to operate in the 3.65-3.7 GHz band, using the IEEE 802.11g standard. The nodes will each have omni-directional antennas and will transmit with less than 1.5 W ERP. The nodes will be configured in an ad-hoc network consisting of two nodes. Testing will last from 30 September 2012 through 01 January 2013.
