Ms. Ivana Kriznic
Equant Inc.

Call Sign E120044
File No. SES-LIC-20120221-00231
Dear Ms. Kriznic:
On February 21, 2012, Equant, Inc. (Equant) filed the above captioned application to modify its
earth station authorization. Specifically, Equant seeks authority to provide Ku-band Earth Station
on Vessel (ESV) services. For the reason stated below, we dismiss this application as defective
without prejudice to refiling.1
Section 25.112(a) of the Commission’s rules, requires the Commission to return, as unacceptable
for filing, any earth station application that is not substantially complete, or does not comply with
the Commission’s rules.2 Equant’s application does not comply with the Commission’s rules,
rendering it unacceptable and subject to dismissal.
In its response to FCC Form 312 Schedule B E47, which requires applicants to identify emission
designators for their proposed operations, Equant made the following entry: “G1DXT.” Equant’s
response fails to comply with the data format and requirements of Sections 2.201 and 2.202 of the
Commission’s rules.3 Sections 2.201 and 2.202 of the Commission’s rules prescribe specific
formats for designating the emissions of proposed earth station operations.4 Failure to provide
this data in the specified format renders the application incomplete because the data cannot be
used for accurate calculations of interference potential.

1 If Equant Inc. refiles an application in which the deficiencies identified in this letter have been corrected
but otherwise identical to the one dismissed, it need not pay an additional application fee. See 47 C.F.R. §
2 47 C.F.R. § 25.112(a).
3 47 C.F.R. §§ 2.201 and 2.202.
4 Id.

Federal Communications Commission DA 12- 1036

Based on the foregoing, and pursuant to Section 25.112 of the Commission’s rules5, and Section
0.261 of the Commission’s rules on delegations of authority,6 we dismiss the application of
Equant, Inc. as defective.
