Busniness Jargon

In this morning's Propwash, there is an article about the new Orbital Express spacecraft soon to be launched. It's a demonstrator of new technology that will allow servicing of satellites in orbit. But you'd never know that from the quote from the Boeing Advanced Systems president, George Meullner.
"Orbital Express is a revolutionary system that will offer customers with appropriately configured on-orbit assets new options to enhance the operation of their systems," said George Muellner, president of Boeing Advanced Systems. "This demonstration mission is the first step toward developing an operational system that can service satellites and support other space operations. Orbital Express continues our success in delivering solutions that shape new markets through the integration of people, innovation and technology."
What a long winded way to say "we can repair satellites in orbit".
