It's a combination of some very old (RH2.1) systems and a rigid
certification process. In short, once the machines are built it's
very, very difficult to modify the setup. Not only are they only
available by a satellite link on only certain days, but the systems
are critical and don't have maintenance windows. Every few years they
may get updated
