Purpose of Operation
The purpose of the experimental license is to test radio frequency (RF) components that will be integrated into the UAS. These components include a command and control uplink and downlink system used to control the UAS; a video telemetry system that will allow a ground station to view a video stream from the UAS; and a telemetry system that will provide measurements from the UAS.
Test Description The video telemetry system will be operated at a remote test site in Sherman, Texas. The configuration includes a ground station and a small UAS. The ground station transmits command and control uplink signals to the UAS and receives telemetry and video data from the UAS. The UAS transmits command and control downlink data, telemetry and video data to the ground station. There will be no actual flight testing during this test.

Good to hear this, because I live very near this place. I worked at TI in the late 70's and my son worked at MEMC in the early 2000's. My hubby and I have seen weird stuff flying overhead for the past 2 years. Never know...
