Amazon is urging US regulators to reject an update to SpaceX’s plan for a second-generation Starlink system.

Kuiper Systems, Amazon’s satellite-broadband subsidiary, says that SpaceX broke Federal Communications Commission rules by “propos[ing] two different configurations for the nearly 30,000 satellites of its Gen2 System, each of which arranges these satellites along very different orbital parameters. SpaceX’s novel approach of applying for two mutually exclusive configurations is at odds with both the commission’s rules and public policy and we urge the commission to dismiss this amendment.”

Amazon summarized its views in a meeting with commission staff and in an ex parte filing on Wednesday that summarized the meeting, saying that SpaceX should be allowed to resubmit the amendment to its application only “after settling on a single configuration for its Gen2 System.”
