Sirius has filed for an experimental license "to research, design and demonstrate prototype satellite radio equipment for use in its satellite digital audio radio services (“SDARS”) system and to research, design and demonstrate new services or enhancements to its existing services." Sirius would conduct experiments at its engineering labs in Vernon, NJ, and Lawrenceville, NJ.
Sirius describes the purpose as:
Sirius continuously seeks to update its technology that it uses and the services that
it offers to consumers. Thus, Sirius needs the capability to test new and prototype
equipment or service enhancements to ensure that they function correctly before
commercial production or deployment. The production of SDARS equipment and the
introduction of new services are both expensive undertakings, and Sirius needs the
capability to test its technology before expending these resources.
There aren't any clues as to what the new equipment and services might include. All we know is that it is entirely within the Sirius band.
