    My apologies if this is too far off-topic (and feel free to email me if you think it is, but have an answer):
    Does anyone know how Aviation Week & Space Technology goes about compiling the data for its tables of satellites, missiles, etc.? 
    It would seem that they would go straight to industry and military sources, but it doesn't say that anywhere. 
    On one table I was able to find a source, but not on the others, and I've noticed that the information in the tables is often out of date.
