I would like to know if it is possible to schedule this application to run at a specific time each day and repeatedly if necessary?

you could do it via an applescript and iCal but I think it would get quite messy for the intervals your planning

Have a look at LaunchD Task Scheduler available via the Mac app store its only £2.49 ($3.99) and looks like it will do what you want. Page two of their gallery shows an option to set the interval to x Seconds or at a specific time each day
