Luc  those are good thoughts.  I went to a mindset of more PCSAT satellites with the SpaceX thing...but of course the theory is just a platform to carry a small payload.

The small transponder you mention is indeed amazing.

I wonder as well if there are some opportunities with the Japanese in terms of their transfer vehicle (interesting to see the differences between that vehicle and the European one).

There are massive changes coming in "how" space is done in the US.  If Falcon 1E and 9 are success...hang on to your hats.
