SpaceX выиграла контракт на запуск следующего поколения спутников GPS

Соперником SpaceX была United Launch Alliance, a joint venture of Boeing and Lockheed Martin which has held a monopoly on national security launches since 2006, told Reuters it would bow out of the program due to a controversy over the Russian engines used by its workhorse Atlas rocket.

Поскольку ULA в своих ракетах использует российский двигатель RD-180, сомпанию выкинули из программы.
That leaves SpaceX as the only possible winner.
В результате остался только один возможный претендент - SpaceX.
