From: Shawn Musgrave

To Whom It May Concern:

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

All contracts with Wave Technologies, Inc. from January 1, 2005 to the date this request is processed.

Per one 2008 report available online prepared by Wave Technologies for the Urban Warfare Analysis center (see https://info.publicintelligence.net/How%20a%20Boy%20Becomes%20a%20Martyr%20-%20The%20Dangers%20of%20Web%202.0%20Technology.pdf):

"About the Urban Warfare Analysis Center: The Urban Warfare Analysis Center (UWAC) is sponsored by the U.S. Army Research Laboratory and operated by Wave
Technologies, Inc. The UWAC is a dedicated center of excellence that provides innovative and multidisciplinary support to meet the needs of the U.S. Department of Defense and Intelligence Community. The UWAC harnesses expertise from throughout the government, academia, and industry to produce research and analysis of modern asymmetric urban warfare, populate a knowledge base dedicated to urban warfare, and assess new technology initiatives. It was founded in 2006."

Given that this FOIA is submitted in my capacity as a journalist who has covered the military and national security 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:

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.
