RBC Signals, LLC (“RBC Signals”), pursuant to Section 25.115 of the Commission’s rules, 47 C.F.R. § 25.115, respectfully seeks a 60 day STA to continue to operate a fixed 6 meter S and X band earth station in Deadhorse, Alaska to conduct telemetry, tracking, and command (“TT&C”) operations in portions of the 2025-2110 MHz (Earth-to space) band with a non-geostationary orbit (“NGSO”) satellites. Specifically, RBC Signals seeks to add as authorized satellite points of communication the U.S.-licensed Quantum Sentry1 satellite, using the frequencies indicated in this narrative, STA Form and summarized in Table 1 below. This system is currently authorized through the FCC office under callsign S3179 and grant SAT-LOA-20230729-00189.

This grant will support Quantum Space LLC’s ability to conduct satellite functionality tests, monitor satellite health, and ensure safe space operations for the Quantum Sentry Satellite. Currently the system is in a low power tumble as a result of poor tracking and limited pass opportunities at the currently utilized ground stations. RBC Signals is requesting an expediated review process for this STA in order to provide critical support to the Sentry System. Adding the Deadhorse 6 meter to operations will greatly improve Quantum’s ability to communicate with the Sentry system and reduce the likelihood of system loss.
