On May 22, 2014, the Satellite Division granted in part and deferred in part the application of Iridium Constellation LLC to extend the license

term for its "Big LEO" non-geostationary orbit Mobile-Satellite Service constellation. Specifically, Iridium Constellation was authorized to

continue the operations of its current constellation in the 1617.775-1626.5 MHz (service link), 19.4-19.6 GHz (feeder downlink and TT&C),

29.1-29.3 GHz (feeder uplink and TT&C), and 23.18-23.38 GHz (inter-satellite link) frequency bands for a term ending January 31, 2018.

Iridium Constellation's request to extend its license term beyond January 31, 2018, was deferred, and will be resolved based on information

developed in IBFS File Nos. SAT-MOD-20131227-00148 and SAT-MOD-20080701-00140 concerning future service requirements and
