    I would guess the bottleneck in VV Dragon sensors is that Red relies on a third party supplier for these sensors and there is only a small pool of companies that can make this stuff. These companies also have a multitude of other larger customers many of them possibly buying hundreds of thousands of sensors. Red is probably only a small "specialist" player and does not have access to unlimited resources with these guys.
    So Red faced with a limited access to the "ovens" has to decide how much time do you allocate to the high failure rate VV Sensors when the same time and resources could be used to make a whole bunch of sensors for 6K Weapons, Scarlets and Ravens? Please note I am only guessing here and do not have a single verifiable piece of actual evidence.

    Jarred actually mentioned that there were certain customers (military, big businesses etc.) that required a certain number of the sensors. I imagine James Cameron, the Avatar guy (didn't he buy like 50 Epic Dragons?) and others were told about the VV sensor before it became open to NAB depositors so that could explain how the low yield became such an unexpected problem.
