SpaceX is calling out rival Amazon for allegedly working with lawyers—and not technology—to test and beat the company’s satellite world-wide-web system, Starlink.
SpaceX built the accusation when defending its strategies for a 2nd-generation Starlink network to the FCC. It’s presently trying to get clearance to work 30,000 Starlink satellites throughout one particular of two orbital configurations. Nonetheless, previous week Amazon filed an objection that criticized the SpaceX-sponsored modification as also broad and speculative, hence breaking FCC regulations.
In reaction, SpaceX Director for Satellite Plan David Goldman sent a letter to the FCC that accuses Amazon of participating in “obstructionist tactics”
