ЦитатаSatellites will play a crucial role in Musk's efforts to reach his ultimate goal -- establishing a human settlement on Mars. Building a commercial satellite business will provide the entrepreneur with revenue and communications know-how that will eventually serve his Martian aspirations.
Цитата"We're going to try and do for satellites what we've done for rockets," Musk said from a conference room at SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California, predicting the company's Seattle engineering office will ultimately employ "several hundred people, maybe a thousand people."
ЦитатаMusk to Bloomberg re satellite manufacture: We'll announce Friday an office in Seattle, 60 people to start, then 100s, to design sats.
Цитатаq: 'People have lost billions on satellite development' a: 'We might join them! But satellite technology is not very advanced, they are designed to be space proven, and if you start the design at proven technology, you're designing with old technology, which means you're launching with 5-10 year old technology'.'Small satellites that may or may not work, with technologies a decade or two more advanced and the ability to relaunch rapidly may change the paradigm'.

Цитата[Question about satellites.] We are. That's actually what we're going to announce on Friday. It's been floating around.. We're creating an engineering center in Seattle. It's actually a satellite office creating satellites. We'll have a soft opening and then we'll have the big announcement on Friday. "We're going to try to do for satellites what we've done for rockets." See if we can make similar improvements in the satellite arena. [How big?] It's going to be fairly significant. Ultimately several hundred people, maybe a thousand people. So, it's big. At the start maybe up to 60 people. [How long until a thousand people?] Maybe three or four years. [Lot of people in Seattle looking for jobs.] Yeah, exactly. [Microsoft, and..] and also people from Boeing and others, so we expect - it'll primarily be satellites but we'll also - if there's really excellent people who want to work on rockets but for family reasons or just refuses to live in L.A. - a lot of people refuse to live in L.A., then they can work at the Seattle office.[Why are you optimistic about satellites? People have lost billions..] Yeah, we might join them. Most satellites are really quite primitive. You kinda think that satellite technology would be really advanced but if you look at how the big satellites are done, all the geostationary stuff, they really want something that's flight proven or that's space proven. So, if you start your design process saying you want proven technology, it's not going to be new technology. So then you design it with, essentially old technology, it takes a while to build that design and then you've got to go launch the design and so by the time the satellites is actually launched they're typically really outdated technology - like 5 to 10 years old - and then if we're talking about a geostationary satellite that's up there for 15 years, by the end of its life it's a quarter of a century old technology. In terms of electronics it's super-ancient stuff. But people, because they go with the Battlestar Gallactica strategy of packing everything into one giant satellite they're petrified that if anything goes wrong their whole business could collapse, you end up with old technology. If you instead go with smaller satellites that you launch more frequently you can use present day technology, or even cutting edge stuff that isn't even necessarily in the hands of consumers, take a chance on the satellite not working but since we're launching frequently and testing it out frequently we can verify that it's going to work in space and actually have technology that's a decade or sometimes two decades more advanced.

Цитата[Have you hired many people from Boeing and Lockheed?] Yeah, we certainly have people from the Air Force and from Lockheed and Boeing. About a third of the company comes from the traditional aerospace industry. [What's the headcount now?] We're just over 4000. We were quite a bit less in previous years.
