At the Jan 2014 American Astronomical Society meeting I had a nice chat with Dom Conte and Chris Clark at their Millennium Space Systems booth. See  http://millennium-space.com  - the Rapid Pathfinder satellite launched in Feb 2011 was
built by them using their Aquila M1 bus, and it is still operating. Millennium's factory is in Torrance, California (with a new
facility in El Segundo nearly ready) and their control center is in nearby Manhattan Beach.
