{Disarmed} Musk-led companies operate as if "the rules are for other people": Amazon attacks SpaceX again

Musk-led companies operate as if

In the war between Jeff Bezos and Elon Musk , a new battle has broken out this week. In a new letter presented by Amazon to the US authorities, he complains about SpaceX's plans to launch new satellites and assures that they operate as if the rules were not with them , referring to all the rules that have been broken in recent years.

Whether it's launching satellites with unlicensed antennas, launching unapproved rockets, building an unapproved launch tower, or reopening a factory in violation of a lock-in-place order, the conduct of SpaceX and other Musk-led companies makes their point. clear view: the rules are for other people, " says the letter from Amazon . With this he refers for example to when Elon Musk opened the Tesla factory in full confinement in California.

The hectic pace of SpaceX vs. FCC and the rest of the companies

But what is this letter about now? It has to do with the new-generation Starlink satellites that SpaceX wants to put into orbit. To do this you need the authorization of the United States FCC. However, Amazon has appealed to it since SpaceX's proposal was to ask the FCC to approve two different satellite configurations but to launch only one of the two configurations.


The system with which SpaceX operates in recent years is to launch iteration after iteration . In a continuous development of new versions, they are working and testing models at the same time that they already work on several new models. In this way they test features and improve in future versions regardless of whether others are already designed. It happens for example with the prototypes of the Starship, where SpaceX does not wait to see what a launch is like before making a new prototype, but has several underway at the same time.

For Amazon this is going against the rules and public policies of the FCC. Proposing two mutually exclusive configurations "requires significant effort" for the FCC and other companies reviewing these plans before they are approved, Amazon says.

This is something that SpaceX obviously does not accept . According to Elon Musk's company, Amazon questions its credulity "by suggesting that it lacks the resources to scrutinize the SpaceX app, especially considering that Amazon routinely attracts up to six lobbyists and lawyers to its many meetings with the Commission. about SpaceX ".

The rapid pace of development that SpaceX has right now in the aerospace industry is exorbitant. Partly due to the use of this strategy of repeated iterations, something that SpaceX is able to do thanks to all the money that comes from financing Elon Musk himself or the investment rounds. This often makes the FCC and other regulations an impediment to SpaceX and slows its pace, as Musk himself has expressed on occasion.

It is also a disadvantage for the competition from SpaceX , which right now does not have the same pace. Amazon has its own Starlink under the Kuiper project , although it has yet to launch any satellites into orbit and they have not announced plans for production. Hence, Elon Musk sees these complaints as a strategy to slow down SpaceX and buy time. Something similar to what they think of the contract for NASA's lunar lander . In short, a war between the two richest people on the planet that goes on for a long time.
