What kind of advantage would it offer to justify the enormous effort/price. If someone had a 66Ghz scope and they stumble across this thing, how likely would they say - "I NEED that or a just cannot continue with this project"?

I would have to agree with you. The first thing that came to mind was the niche market for a scope like this. Although the video was very cool and informative the practicality of a scope of this magnitude would be limited to very few corporations. I wonder what the calibration cycle is and how much they charge?  ;D
BTW, does anyone know what they are selling this beast for? I probably don't want to know.

It is $1 million dollars.

Which is not, relatively, a huge amount of money when considering the operating budget of a medium to large corporation.

If that is the instrument that allows you to get more data over existing trans-ocean fiber or something similar - $1mil is chump change compared to laying a new pipe. Just better make sure the guy requesting the PO knows what to do with it. My first task would be making a post in the "Show Your Squarewave" thread. Probably not worth the money for that task.

I believe that is exactly what you have at the end of the video. It is showing a femtosecond pulse generator output. Although I have no idea if the pulse itself if square, of course.
