The Olympic games are the quadrennial celebration of the springtime of humanity.

West Coast Edition Cover : “The Rio Grande Valley Is Becoming The Space Valley”

Pierre de Coubertin

The Olympic games are an international sports festival, held every four years. The ultimate goals are to cultivate human beings, through sport, and contribute to world peace. Although the ancient Games were staged in Olympia, Greece, from 776 BC through 393 AD, it took 1503 years for the Olympics to return.The first modern Olympics were held in Athens, Greece, in 1896.The man responsible for its rebirth was a Frenchman named Baron Pierre de Coubertin, who presented the idea in 1894.

My spouse and I look forward to the Olympic games and we watch the world come together every 4 years to compete with the best of the best in a professional mutually respectful atmosphere.The whole world is watching!

PUBLISHERS/EDITORS Kim Carpenter & Linda Daly

It seems like most Olympians put their politics aside and compete with those they hold in high regard for their abilities and their determination to be the best in their field. When some have fallen, those of other nations have reached down to pick up (literally) their competitors and offer a hand clean of prejudice.

We all are in awe of records being broken, the human spirit and passion remaining unbroken, and the pinpoint focus all Olympians exert to achieve their goal of winning the coveted medals they CONTRIBUTORS will hold in pride for the rest of their lives. There is another sense of pride that we see with our Linda Daly, Eugene Wirth, Stephen Hannemann, world Olympians and that is pride to compete for their country under their respective flags.They Hugh Taylor view their countries’ flags as symbol of the family they come from and they wear it as a banner of honor with pride in their hearts. The Olympic symbol (the Olympic rings) expresses the activity of the Olympic Movement and represents the union of the five continents and the meeting of athletes from throughout the world at the Olympic games. The Olympic Movement – a concept led by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) for the modern Olympic Games – stresses the mission of building a peaceful and better world, by educating youth through sports practice in accordance with Olympism and its values, and agrees to uphold the principles of peace, fair play and fair contest with the view to creating a peaceful society with less violence. -The fastest man has just ‘bolted’ by and he is not from your country, but your humanness comes through and you are in awe because you see what being the fastest man alive looks like. This inspiration can and has led others to work on self-improvement and mutual respect.

Welcome to the (Commercial) Space Age In our recent research, we examined how the model of centralized, government-directed human space activity born in the 1960s has, over the last two decades, made way for a new model, in which public initiatives in space increasingly share the stage with private priorities. Centralized, government-led space programs will inevitably focus on space-for-earth activities that are in the public interest, such as national security, basic science, and national pride.This is only natural, as expenditures for these programs must be justified by demonstrating benefits for citizens — and the citizens these governments represent are (nearly) all on earth. In contrast to governments, the private sector is eager to put people in space to pursue their own personal interests, not the state’s — and then supply the demand they create.This is the vision driving SpaceX, which in its first twenty years has entirely upended the rocket launch industry, securing 60% of the global commercial launch market and building everlarger spacecraft designed to ferry passengers not just to the International Space Station (ISS), but also to its own promised settlement on Mars. Today, the space-for-space market is limited to supplying the people who are already in space: that is, the handful of astronauts employed by NASA and other government programs.While SpaceX has grand visions of supporting large numbers of private space travelers, their current space-for-space activities have all been in response to demand from government customers (i.e., NASA). But as decreasing launch costs A2Z MANUFACTURING WEST COAST •

10 • AUG- SEPT ‘21

enable companies like SpaceX to leverage economies of scale and put more people into space, growing private sector demand (that is, tourists and settlers, rather than government employees) could turn these proofof-concept initiatives into a sustainable, large-scale industry. This model — of selling to NASA with the hopes of eve n t u a l ly creating and expanding into a larger private market — is exemplified by SpaceX, but the company is by no means the only player taking this approach. For instance, while SpaceX is focused on space-for-space transportation, another key component of this burgeoning industry will be manufacturing. Made In Space, Inc. has been at the forefront of manufacturing “in space, for space” since 2014, when it 3D-printed a wrench onboard the ISS. Today, the company is exploring other products, such as high-quality fiber-optic cable, that terrestrial customers may be willing to pay to have manufactured in zero-gravity. But the company also recently received a $74 million contract to 3D-print large metal beams in space for use

on NASA spacecraft, and future private sector spacecraft will certainly have similar manufacturing needs which Made In Space hopes to be well-positioned to fulfill. Just as SpaceX has begun by supplying NASA but hopes to eventually serve a much larger, private-sector market, Made In Space’s current work with NASA could be the first step along a path towards supporting a variety of private-sector manufacturing applications for which the costs of manufacturing on earth and transporting into space would be prohibitive.

Another major area of space-for-space investment is in building and operating space infrastructure such as habitats, laboratories, and factories. Axiom Space, a current leader in this field, recently announced that it would be flying the “first fully private commercial mission to space” in 2022 onboard SpaceX’s Crew Dragon Capsule. Axiom was also awarded a contract for exclusive access to a module of the ISS, facilitating its plans to develop modules for commercial activity on the station (and eventually, beyond it). This infrastructure is likely to spur investment in a wide array of complementary services to supply the demand of the people living and working within it. For example, in February 2020, Maxar Technologies was awarded a $142 million contract from NASA to develop a robotic construction tool that would be assembled in space for use on low-Earth orbit spacecraft. Private sector spacecraft or settlements will no doubt have need for a variety of similar construction and repair tools.


And of course, the private sector isn’t just about industrial products. Creature comforts also promise to be an area of rapid growth, as companies endeavor to support the human side of life in the harsh environment of space. In 2015, for example, Argotec and Lavazza collaborated to build an espresso machine that could function in the zero-gravity environment of the ISS, delivering a bit of everyday luxury to the crew.

To be sure, people have dreamt of using the vacuum and weightlessness of space to source or make things that cannot be made on earth for half a century, and time and again the business case has failed to pan out. Skepticism is natural. Those failures, however, have been in space-forearth applications. For example, two startups of the 2010s, Planetary Resources, Inc. and Deep Space Industries, recognized the potential of space mining early on. For both companies, however, the lack of a space-for-space economy meant that their near-term survival depended on selling mined material — precious metals or rare elements — to earthbound customers. When it became clear that demand was

insufficient to justify the high costs, funding dried up, and both companies pivoted to other ventures. These were failures of space-for-earth business models — but the demand for in-space mining of raw building material, metals, and water will be enormous once humans are living in space (and are therefore far cheaper to supply). In other words, when people are living and working in space, we are likely to look back on these early asteroid mining companies less as failures and more as simply ahead of their time. Seizing the Space-for-Space Opportunity The opportunity presented by the space-for-space economy is huge — but it could easily be missed. To seize this moment, policymakers must provide regulatory and institutional frameworks that will enable the risk-taking and innovation necessary for a decentralized, private-sectordriven space economy. There are three specific policy areas we believe will be especially important: A2Z MANUFACTURING WEST COAST •

Rocket Lab Rockets Ahead With Back-ToBack Missions And A Photon Deal

CMM Revo Half Page Final.indd 1

manufacturing company Varda Space Industries.

Rocket Lab USA Inc. is blasting back into business after losing its 20th mission earlier this year with back-to-back missions for global monitoring provider BlackSky and a new deal with in-space

The Long Beach, California-based aerospace company announced this week that its next mission will be the first of three Electron rocket launches for BlackSky slated to take place from late August through September. The three missions will mark Rocket Lab’s fastest launch turnarounds to date. The first, dubbed “Love at First Insight,” will lift off from Launch Complex 1 in New Zealand carrying the eighth and ninth satellites in a planned BlackSky constellation that’s part of a multi-launch agreement between Rocket Lab and Spaceflight Inc., which is providing integration and mission management services for BlackSky. Rocket Lab will launch another four Gen-2 smallsats for BlackSky in two more missions in short succession. A2Z MANUFACTURING WEST COAST •

12 • AUG- SEPT ‘21

4/6/2020BlackSky 2:04:17 PM “Rapid launch with these three back-to-back missions enables to fast-track their plans for a constellation that meets the hunger for real-time data produced by multiple images within 24 hours, rather than one image at the same time each day,” said Rocket Lab founder and CEO Peter Beck in a statement.

The mission will be Rocket lab’s 22nd Electron launch overall and fifth mission of the year, and will bring the total number of satellites launched by the company to 107. The announcement demonstrates BlackSky and Spaceflight’s continued confidence in Rocket Lab despite an anomaly during its last mission for the client that resulted in the loss of its payload. Both the Federal Aviation Administration and Rocket Lab have since investigated the incident and cleared the company to resume launches, starting with a successful mission for the U.S. Space Force last month. “We’ve been partnering strongly with Rocket Lab over the past several months to gain high confidence in a launch campaign that will increase the capacity of our space network,” added BlackSky CEO Brian E. O’Toole. Meanwhile, in a separate announcement, Rocket Lab said it has signed a deal to produce three of its Photon spacecraft to integrate with Varda’s space factories. The Torrance-based startup aims to manufacture things like fiber optic

cables, pharmaceuticals and semiconductors in space, then return them to Earth via a reentry capsule. Such high-value products deliver higher performance when produced in zero gravity. Rocket Lab’s Photon will help by moving the spacecraft into operational orbit and handling station keeping, and by providingVarda’s 120-kilogram manufacturing and reentry modules with power, data and attitude control. Photon’s 3D-printed Curie engine will also perform multiple burns to guide the reentry capsule’s return trajectory to Earth. The Photons will also use Rocket Lab spacecraft components, including radios, reaction wheels and star trackers. The missions will last three months. The first Varda Photon is slated to deliver in the first quarter of 2023, followed by a second later in the year and a third in 2024. Varda also has the option to buy a fourth Photon. “The Varda team is undertaking ground-breaking work that really opens up new possibilities and markets for in-space manufacturing,” Beck said in a statement. “We are one step closer to delivering valuable materials to our clients here on Earth,” added Varda CEO Will Bruey. The announcement follows news that Rocket Lab’s Photon spacecraft

has also been tapped for NASA missions to the moon and to Mars. By Annlee Ellingson – Staff Reporter, L.A. Biz

There’s No Shortage Of Hype Surrounding The Commercial Space Industry But while tech leaders promise us moon bases and settlements on Mars, the space economy has thus far remained distinctly local — at least in a cosmic sense. Last year, however, we crossed an important threshold: For the first time in human history, humans accessed space via a vehicle built and owned not by any government, but by a private corporation with its sights set on affordable space settlement. It was the first significant step towards building an economy both in space and for space. The implications — for business, policy, and society at large — are hard to overstate. In 2019, 95% of the estimated $366 billion in revenue earned in the space sector was from the space-for-earth economy: that is, goods or services produced in space for use on earth.The space-for-earth economy includes telecommunications and internet infrastructure, earth observation capabilities, national security satellites, and more.This economy is booming, and though research shows that it faces the challenges of overcrowding and monopolization that tend to arise whenever companies compete for a scarce natural resource, projections for its future are optimistic. Decreasing costs for launch and space hardware in general have enticed new entrants into this market, and companies in a variety of industries have already begun leveraging satellite technology and access to space to drive innovation and efficiency in their earthbound products and services.

Portland nonprofitVertueLab, which works with cleantech and startups fighting climate change, received a nearly $1 million federal grant to formalize partnerships with Washington research organizations and build out a network of support for early-stage clean energy hardware startups in the Pacific Northwest. The money is from the Department of Energy and its Energy Program

Innovation Clusters initiative.VertueLab led the effort to land this capital and create the Northwest Cleantech Innovation Network. The other partners in this newly created network are Clean Tech Alliance in Seattle, Washington Clean Energy Testbeds at the University of Washington, and Joint Center for Deployment and Research in Earth Abundant Materials in Everett, Washington. “Clean energy entrepreneurs need specific tailored support and resources to test and scale their technology,” said David Kenney, president and executive director of VertueLab, in a written statement. “We’re very thankful to be part of this grant award, as it recognizes both our track record of success and our innovative holistic approach to supporting climate tech entrepreneurs.” The capital will be doled out over three years.The funding also means that VertueLab will be able to support startups outside of Oregon and expand to Washington, Idaho and Alaska, said spokesperson Cassidy Johnston. VertueLab was created in 2018. It’s the next evolution of what was Oregon BEST, a state-backed signature research center launched in 2007 to support cleantech development. The group launched a Climate Impact Fund last year and has ongoing programs to support entrepreneurs including the Cascadia Cleantech Accelerator in partnership with the Clean Tech Alliance and a program to help entrepreneurs land federal grants through Small Business Innovation Research and Small Business Technology Transfer programs. With this latest grant money the SBIR/STTR support can now extend to

other states and the group is hiring for that effort. Until now, the group has only been able to support Oregon founders, said Johnston. To date, the group has helped entrepreneurs access $9 million in federal funding. The Northwest Cleantech Innovation Network was one of 10 groups to receive this DOE grant funding. Across the country the government awarded $9.5 million to programs designed to strengthen the domestic clean energy ecosystem. By Malia Spencer – Portland Business Journal

By the middle of the decade, the startup expects to have in place all the manufacturing lines and processes it will need to build a general purpose version of its computer, O’Brien said. “Well within this decade, we are going to see the world-changing results of the applications enabled by our quantum computer,” the CEO said. Quantum computers have the potential to process data millions of times faster than conventional ones and may one day be able to solve problems that today’s computers can’t. Instead of storing information as zeros and ones, they use quantum bits — or qubits — that can be both and neither.

One advantage of using photons is that PsiQuantum’s computer will be more likely to be able to perform reliable calculations without errors, Peter Shadbolt, the company’s co-founder and chief strategy officer, told the Wall Street Journal. Shadbolt and his co-founders, Chief Technology Officer Mark Thompson, Chief Architect Terry Rudolph and CEO Jeremy O’Brien all have doctorates. All four have either researched or taught physics and electrical engineering. PsiQuantum’s larger rivals, which include International Business Machines Corp. and Alphabet Inc.’s Google LLC, are using different technological approaches to develop their own quantum computers. In May, PsiQuantum announced a deal with GlobalFoundries to build

its quantum chips at the latter’s manufacturing facilities. By Cromwell Schubarth – TechFlash Editor

Facebook Buys Ex-Googler’s Rapid Hardware Prototyping Startup Facebook has acquired a San Carlos company founded two years ago by former Google and Motorola Mobility engineer Baback Elmieh that offers tools for rapid prototyping of physical products. Facebook on Monday said it will buy Nascent Objects, a San Carlos-based startup whose tools help in the rapid development of physical products. Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed. The startup hadn’t previously disclosed funding nor investors. It was launched two years ago by Google and Motorola Mobility veteran Baback Elmieh and will now join Facebook’s secretive hardware lab, Building 8. Facebook has been has been working on such hardware projects as Wi-Fi drones and virtual reality goggles. “Imagine designing, building and delivering a hardware product in just weeks. Instead of months, or even years,” Building 8 leader Regina Dugan wrote on her Facebook page. “Together, we hope to create hardware at a speed that’s more like software.”

As Lumber Prices Fall, The Threat Of Inflation Loses Its Bite From sawmills to store shelves to your own hammer swings, lumber can tell you a lot about what is going on in the economy right now. Lumber prices soared over the last year, frustrating would-be pandemic do-ityourselfers, jacking up the costs of new homes and serving as a compelling talking point in the debate over whether government stimulus efforts risked the return of 1970s-style inflation. The housing-and-renovation boom drove insatiable demand for lumber, even as the pandemic idled mills that had already been slowed by an anemic construction sector since the 2008 financial crisis. Lumber futures surged to unprecedented heights, peaking at more than $1,600 per thousand board feet in early May. But since then, the prices of those same plywood sheets and pressuretreated planks have tumbled as mills restarted or ramped up production and some customers put off their purchases until prices came down.

Department of Labor Reviewing Overtime Rule The Department of Labor (DoL) is reviewing the overtime exemption rule under the Fair Labor Standards Act, to increase the minimum salary threshold for workers to qualify for overtime pay when working more than 40 hours per week. DoL is considering increasing the threshold to $50,000 with regular increases, higher than the revision passed by the Obama Administration. Obama finalized the overtime exemption rule in 2016, more than doubling the threshold from $23,660 to $47,476 per year for Executive, Administrative, Professional & Clerical Employees (EAP) and for highly compensated workers from $100,000 to $134,000. One Voice was part of a business

coalition lawsuit against the rule, which was ultimately blocked from implementation by the courts. The Trump administration then issued their own rule setting the threshold for EAP employees at $35,568 annually and $107,432 per year for highly compensated employees. FTC Increases ‘Made in USA’ Enforcement In July, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) finalized a rule increasing the enforcement of the accurate labeling of products “Made in USA.” Under the finalized rule, companies that incorrectly use “Made in USA” or “Made in America” labels will be subject to fines of as much as $43,280 for every violation. The rule, which requires marketers that use the “Made in US” label to prove that their products are “all or virtually all” made in the United States, does not impose any new requirements on businesses but rather codifies existing FTC guidance on U.S.-origin claims on labels. Under the rule, marketers are prohibited from making unqualified claims on labels unless the final assembly or processing of the product occurs in the U.S., all significant processing that goes into the product occurs in the U.S., and all or virtually all ingredients or components of the product are made and sourced in the U.S. A2Z MANUFACTURING WEST COAST •

“The Rio Grande Valley Is Becoming the Space Valley” Dan Schatzman May 22, 2021: Virgin Galactic makes history in New Mexico History was made today in New Mexico, as the Land of Enchantment became the third U.S. state to launch humans into space. Virgin Galactic's VSS Unity sent two pilots and NASA technology supported experiments in space. Today's flight marked three firsts - it is the first spaceflight from Virgin Galactic's headquarters at Spaceport America; it's the first time humans have flown into space from the state of New Mexico and C.J. Sturckow is now the first astronaut to fly into space from three different U.S. states..... Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham says today's flight is a game changer, and will open the doors for commercial space flights from New Mexico. Whether you are an investor, a manufacturer, a traveler or an astronomer, the space industry has never been as attractive as it is today. The forecast for its growth is astounding. For example, Morgan Stanley projects the Space industry’s revenues to grow to more than $1 trillion by 2040. In its report Spaceport America titled Space: Investing in The Final Frontier, the author suggests that declining launch costs, advances in technology and rising public-sector interest will likely position space exploration as the next trillion-dollar industry. Costs will progressively decrease by reusable rockets, mass production of satellites, and maturity of satellite technology. To put this into perspective, where it once cost ~$200 million to launch a satellite, today it costs ~ $60 million, with the potential to drop to $5 million. Additionally, satellite mass production could reduce costs to $500K, the Morgan Stanley report suggests. “Before such US entrepreneurs as Elon Musk (SpaceX), Jeff Bezos (Blue Origin) and Richard Branson (Virgin Galactic), space exploration was almost completely driven by the government and a handful of Fortune 100 traditional aerospace companies, including Boeing, Northrup Grumman and Lockheed Martin”, says Dan Schatzman, CEO of Jaguar Precision Machine (JPM). He continued, “One of the fastest growing industries in the world is the space industry. It is an immense universe and there is plenty of room for all of us. The new players are leveraging miniaturized technologies which make access to space more efficient, lighter and less expensive.” He adds, “I don’t see new manufacturing companies getting into the market as competition. Instead, it looks more like a larger and better infrastructure to help the US companies grow this infinite market and it is critical that the USA continue to be the leader in space!” Today, North America has the highest market share in the spacecraft market, primarily given the influence and sizeable space budget of NASA.

Direc tor, O ffice of Space Commerce U.S. Department of Commerce, says, “The race for the 2060 space economy is on, and co m p e t i t i o n is not a detri- Dan Schatzman, CEO ment because JPM it stimulates innovations that benefit all of humanity. This is possible when it is fueled by adaptive U.S. government policies, strong private sector entrepreneurship, a strong finance and insurance ecosystem, an inspired and growing workforce, and effective partnerships. As the global partner of choice, the US and its allies stand to prevail and maintain the lion’s share in the economy. However, this race is much less about market share than it is about the norms, values, and behaviors that will carry us into the heavens to explore the Moon and other planets and will create breath-taking new capabilities to improve our lives back on Earth for all of humanity. We simply cannot fail in this race!” New Mexico has a rich history in the space industry. Robert Goddard, inventor of the liquid fuel rocket, early on recognized its suitability for space research. What made the state particularly well suited for rocket launches were its large expanse of flat open space, little vegetation to catch on fire, few people to be frightened or injured, good weather throughout the year, power availability, access to rail and air transportation, and higher elevation for fuel conservation. In 1930, Goddard moved to Roswell, NM and his first rocket launch that year reached an astounding altitude of 2000 feet and a speed of 500 miles an hour. A decade later he launched the first manmade vehicle to travel faster than the speed of sound and sent a rock to an altitude of nearly 9000 feet. For the same reasons Goddard selected New Mexico for its test site, in 1945 the US Army established the first atmosphere testing rocket

at White Sands, a hundred miles west of Roswell.

center of the ‘Space Valley’ in the future.”

Today, New Mexico has three key Space Force organizations that work in space operating at Kirtland Air Force Base (KAFB): The Space Rapid Capabilities Office (Space RCO), the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), and Space and Missile Systems Center (SMC). The state also boasts two Department of Energy National Laboratories: Sandia National Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory.

The US government has made significant investments in space through NASA, and with NASA increasingly relying on private companies for goods and services, it means very good things for spacefocused companies. Today there are more than 200 manufacturers in Aerospace in the Space Valley (from Brownsville, Texas to Denver, Colorado), making parts for space. Spaceport America is right in the center of the Space Valley.

The FAA designated a number of ‘Spaceports’ throughout the US, all with a runway for horizontal take-offs and landings. New Mexico has its own Spaceport, called ‘Spaceport America’. It is located on 18,000 acres in Sierra County near Elephant Butte Lake. Spaceport America, owned and operated by the state, is the world’s first ‘purpose-built’ commercial spaceport designed and constructed specifically for commercial users. While the first rocket to launch from Spaceport America took place 15 years ago, today it has seen more than 300 launches. Its tenants include Virgin Galactic, SpinLaunch, AeroVironment’s UAV project HAPSMobile, and UP Aerospace. Its customers include Boeing, Swift Engineering, C6 Launch Systems, ABL and WSRD, LLC. The facility is frequently used for STEM education projects for students of all ages. In February 2020 Virgin Galactic’s WhiteKnightTwo, a custom-built, four-engine, dual-fuselage jet aircraft, designed to carry SpaceShipTwo (an air-launched suborbital spaceplane type designed for space tourism) up to an altitude of ~50,000 feet) moved to Spaceport America, and months later, Virgin Galactic carried out its 1st and 2nd successful glide flight of its spaceship. Virgin Galactic held its first successful human spaceflight from Spaceport America in May 2021. Also last year, Aerovironment’s HAPSMobile, a joint venture with Japan’s SoftBank Corp., announced that it has chosen Spaceport America for test operations and development of a specialized communications platform.

SPACE Valley

There are many places an individual can invest in space today. For example, there are ETFs like UFO, ARKX, and individual stocks such as Virgin Galactic (SPCE) available on the stock market exchanges. In addition, people can invest privately in things like the Space Fund, which is rapidly becoming the world’s leading space venture capital company. Its team started the LaunchPad fund in 2019 as a proof of concept to demonstrate its ability to find, navigate, and capitalize on deal flow that may be elusive to those outside of the insular next generation space community. “We balance our excitement about what is and will be happening in space with a deep and thorough vetting process,” said SpaceFund managing partner and co-founder Meagan Crawford. “We don’t chase rockets, satellite swarms, or shiny objects. Instead, we find brilliant teams with game changing technologies and solid business plans. While some of them may not seem glamorous, they are the foundational elements of a rapidly rising space economy.” Casey shares Dan’s enthusiasm for the market potential for space in the state. She says, “There are a variety of in-state space companies that range in size from large prime contractors to innovative high–tech startups some of which have started via government contracts. New companies are starting in our state with private investment. New Mexico has over 140 companies working in the space industry. Virgin Galactic, the anchor tenant of Spaceport America, is gearing up to take tourists to space. Virgin Galactic has over 600 space enthusiasts signed up for its flights, at a cost of $250,000 per person.”

Casey Anglada DeRaad, founder/CEO of NewSpace New Mexico, says, “Our state personifies the essential spirit of the aerospace revolution – from our world-class commercial Spaceport with access to over 6,000 square miles of protected airspace to the dozens of cutting-edge tech companies who are tackling some of the universe’s greatest challenges. New Mexico’s intellectual capital and access to key federal resources are second to none.”

Dan says: “Whether you are investing as an individual or your company is already in the Aerospace industry, the changes in technologies are transforming our world here on earth. When Galveston Port was established as a principal port and gateway to the Southwest in Texas, during the 19th century, it helped transform Houston into one of the largest and influential cities in the United States. Please note: Before the invention of central air conditioning in 1902, Houston only had one High School. I use this analogy because the new technologies of Space have changed the world and Spaceport America is our gateway to Space like the Galveston port to the Gulf of Mexico. These shifts in technology will help transform New Mexico into a renowned space transportation hub. “

She adds, “The adoption of the Internet made Silicon Valley what it is today. It is not far-fetched to say that New Mexico with it’s many space assets will be the

Intel unveiled two heavy-hitting customers for its new foundry business. Amazon Web Services and rival fabless chipmaker Qualcomm are lined up for Intel’s cutting-edge products in 2025. These customers for Intel Foundry Services, a new business unit created earlier this year, were revealed during a tech-heavy presentation by CEO Pat Gelsinger and company technologists who outlined Intel’s roadmap to regain its leading-edge chipmaking crown. Gelsinger told industry analysts that Intel expects to gain parity on process manufacturing with rivals in 2024 and take a leadership position in 2025, when the company will manufacture on an atomic level. Wall Street investors likely weren’t pleased to hear the time frame for regaining leadership. The stock was down in after-hours trading more than 2%.

Gelsinger also introduced a new naming system for the different process nodes, stepping away from the nanometer nomenclature the company has used and instead adopting one that could better illustrate product improvements between the generations of manufacturing process. Historically, Intel and the industry have named manufacturing process and products by the nanometer size of the gates between transistors. He told analysts that gate size hasn’t been accurate as nodes have gotten smaller but speed and efficiency has still increased. This is how different generations of chips from different companies can get confusing. For instance, the 10nm chip from Intel is roughly equivalent to the 7nm chip from others. Following the current 10nm node, that Intel is shipping, the company will shift to Intel 7 (which was formerly the third generation of 10nm), then Intel 4 (which was formerly called 7nm), then Intel 3 and then the introduction of Intel 20A. The shift pleased at least one analyst. Patrick Moorhead, president of Moor Insights and Strategy, wrote in a blog post he hopes it will make comparisons easier. “I’m hopeful we’ll move away from ‘smaller meaning faster’ is innovation, which isn’t necessarily the case, and toward ‘efficiency and density,’ including packaging more defines innovation,” he wrote. Intel 7 is slated to ship in 2021 with Alder Lake for PCs, then Sapphire Rapids in the first quarter of 2022 for the data center, said Ann Kelleher, senior vice president and general manager of technology development. Intel 4 will be ready for production in the second half of 2022 and products shipping in 2023.


24 • AUG- SEPT ‘21

Kelleher noted that Intel 4 will be the first product to fully embrace








extreme ultraviolet lithography. Intel 3 is slated for manufacturing in the second half of 2023 and products available in 2024. Intel’s less-than-full embrace of EUV for production was considered a key cause of manufacturing delays in recent years, contributing to its stumble from the top of process leadership. Kelleher and other technologists noted that Intel is working closely with Dutch company ASML, which makes EUV machines, to ensure Intel has access to the machines needed for capacity and also access to advances in that technology. ASML has a growing footprint in the Portland metro and has worked closely with Intel as the company has expanded its Ronler Acres manufacturing facility. “Building on Intel’s unquestioned leadership in advanced packaging, we are accelerating our innovation roadmap to ensure we are on a clear path to process performance leadership by 2025,” Gelsinger said during the event. “We are leveraging our unparalleled pipeline of innovation to

deliver technology advances from the transistor up to the system level.” Intel 20A is the start of the angstrom era, Gelsinger said. An angstrom is a unit of measurement smaller than a nanometer. Intel 20A, the process node on which Qualcomm and Intel Foundry Services are working, is expected in the first half of 2024. Gelsinger told analysts the San Diego-based mobile chipmaker has done deep due diligence on Intel’s 20A product. Intel’s Oregon facility, one if its many fabs across the country and globally, plays a key role in all of this. Oregon is home to Intel’s manufacturing research and development. Innovation in process technology happens here and is shipped to its other sites. Gelsinger noted the company starts its high volume manufacturing in its Oregon fab. “(We’re) the only leading-edge player doing R&D and leading manufacturing in the U.S.,” he said. He reiterated that the company will announce adding further capacity to its fab network in the U.S. and Europe by the end of this year.

The Manufacturing PMI, or the Purchasing Managers’ Index, is a set of economic indicators based off surveys of private-sector companies.The report was issued June 1 by Timothy R. Fiore, chair of the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) Manufacturing Business Survey Committee. “The May Manufacturing PMI registered 61.2%, an increase of 0.5 percentage point from the April reading of 60.7%,” Fiore says. “This figure indicates expansion in the overall economy for the 12th month in a row after contraction in April 2020.” The ISM report echoes economic news from other sources. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), for example, announced May 31 that the economy is set to grow this year at the fastest rate since 1984.The OECD report predicts U.S. gross domestic product will grow 6.9% in 2021. Most indexes within the ISM report registered slightly higher than the previous month. Manufacturers responding to the survey noted several challenges. A2Z MANUFACTURING WEST COAST •

The Manufacturer’s Secret Weapon SPA, Super Positive Attitude

By Stephen Hannemann

So far 2021 has been an incredible year in many ways. Manufacturing is rebounding in many sectors. People are beginning to move around again, to sporting events, out to dinner, attending community gatherings and churches are opening up again. It feels good! This year has been special for me in a new way. My son Troy invited me to crew on his 2,000-horsepower blown alcohol d r a g s t e r. I have enjoyed many year s in motorcycle, boat, Tuning Time and high speed waterski racing, but this was my first experience at or on a drag strip. What a thrill! What I am about to write has nothing to do with racing, but everything to do with interactions, relationships, and having a Super Positive Attitude with colleagues in the workplace, and in general, people everywhere. I think I just may have coined an acronym (SPA). On a late Saturday evening in July at the Firebird Raceway just outside of Boise, Idaho I Troy Hannemann and Brother witnessed a culture that is Shayne changing probably foreign to a great the blower boost many people in business. While tuning the dragster for the final round of the weekend, we stripped the threads on the mag mount, which meant we couldn’t time the engine.Within minutes word spread up and down pit row and people from competing crews appeared in force to offer assistance. Bear in mind, the competition at these races is fierce. But I quickly learned in the drag racing culture, your competition is not your enemy. They are your allies. My only regret is I had no time to take photos during the fray, but within A2Z MANUFACTURING WEST COAST •

30 short minutes we / they came up with a solution. Break out the timing light! After the third try, we were in time on the motor but not for the race. The last call had come and gone.We had missed our start by just minutes. I was so proud of my son Troy. Amidst the fussing and grousing of the unfairness of not being able to run, Troy smiled and said triumphantly, “Well, we’re going home running!”

Stephen Feeding the Beast.

This whole experience reinforced the importance and the power of a positive attitude – an SPA. If you have read my previous A2Z articles you probably have seen me reference Simon Sinek often. Simon has stated many times, “You can go to any bookstore and find rows of ‘Self Help’ books. What you don’t see are books on how to help others.” Well Simon, take a weekend and buy yourself a ticket to the pits at a drag race and marvel at the “how can I help culture”! While on my flight home from the Firebird Raceway my mind was swimming with thoughts of how this drag race pit attitude, this SPA culture could be transplanted into many of our businesses, corporate cultures, and our government. Maybe we could have experienced 2020 in a whole different way. Just a thought. . . I would like to take this space to thank theThunderStruck race car sponsors and my son Troy Hannemann for an eye-opening experience: Fahey Machinery – Jetty Fishery – ThunderStruckRaceCo – Flatline Fabrication – Cannon Marine. Thank you all for the opportunity to be exposed to a Super Positive Attitude!
