This STA uses information from previous grant 1041-EX-ST-2020 and is necessary to authorize Starship Prototype suborbital test vehicle communications for Medium Altitude Hops Tests_2 (max altitude 20km) from the Boca Chica launch pad, and the experimental recoveries following the suborbital hops. Trajectory data will be provided directly to NTIA, USAF, and NASA. Launch licensing authority is FAA Office of Commercial Space Transportation.
