In the ever-changing world of technology - radiofrequencies, microwaves, and millimeterwaves are within the ecosystems that hold our domain together. Researching and communicating with various suppliers, along with budgeting, can be time consuming and unclear.
From Forbes and Starburst:
Elon Musk told a group of assembled space entrepreneurs that if they can build a rocket component better than SpaceX can, “we would love to buy that,” noting his private space startup used to build the landing legs for its Falcon 9 rocket but now buys them from race car manufacturer All American Racers. “We’d love to outsource more.”
The QF team will once again be in attendance at IMS this year alongside our lineup of suppliers. Feel free to reach out (email@example.com) and schedule a meetup to discuss our services and linecard. We'll be there all week June 3rd-7th.

From Los Angeles Times:
Aerospace giant Boeing Co. said Thursday it will acquire Millennium Space Systems of El Segundo, a maker of small satellites, in the latest indication that tiny spacecraft are upending the industry.
From Space Tech Expo USA:
During our research, it became apparent that the microlauncher industry excites many. This soon-to-become-operational market will open up a new avenue for bringing satellites and other small spacecraft into orbit. This market will be able to widen the launch bottleneck and provide a fast launch service to the thousands of small satellites to be launched within the next decade
There are a lot of interesting and innovative applications surfacing worldwide, therefore we want to take a moment to dedicate periodic posts highlighting our Applications page. In this weeks edition we link to articles covering how 5G data speeds will help evolve the medical industry; the first nanosatellite to beam a smarthphone call from space; wireless enabled clothing and wearable biometric rings to help replace passwords, keys, and credit cards; and how airplanes are turning into communications satellites.
From the Los Angeles Times:
It’s been 44 years since the mighty Saturn V last thundered skyward from a launch pad at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The towering rocket, generating enough power to lift 269,000 pounds into orbit, had been the workhorse of the Apollo moon missions.
Billionaires putting their money where their mouth is - nothing new, but commercializing space could be. Guys like Elon Musk, Sir Richard Branson, and Jeff Bezos are all competing by who has the coolest company and space vehicle. This seems like a great story for healthy competition in space exploration however. Check it out for yourself...
