To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

The UAS National Airspace System Flight Operations Standardized Procedures report in July 2015

Per the Department of Defense, Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, January 2015, "Report to Congress on Addressing Challenges for Unmanned Aircraft Systems" (see https://muckrock.s3.amazonaws.com/foia_files/5-6-15_MR15648_RES_ID15-F-0630.pdf): "The UAS AI Joint Test team has completed two of the three live fly events and is in the process of completing the UAS National Airspace System Flight Operations Standardized Procedures report in July 2015."

Given that this FOIA is submitted in my capacity as a journalist who has covered the federal government extensively, I request that I be categorized as a media requester for the purpose of fees. Here is a selection of my published articles on MuckRock:

As the requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com and pertains to a matter of considerable public interest, I further request a full waiver of all fees.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
