SpaceX Shelves Alternative Configuration for Second-Generation Starlink Satellites

(17 Jan 2022) "In a move that could be seen as a partial victory for Amazon's Kuiper Systems, SpaceX withdrew its proposal for an alternative configuration for the second-generation Starlink satellites. Kuiper Systems filed an objection to SpaceX's proposals for upgraded Starlink satellites with the FCC, saying that it created 'two mutually exclusive configurations' that created more work for competitors. It said that its employees would have to do double the work to account for two distinct configurations and avoid possible interference between the two constellations every time it launches satellites."
