I don't get it.

If somebody could do this, why would they need or want to compete for a
measly $1M prize?

The point of a prize is to encourage development of a new technology.
The commercialisation of it comes after. These people seem to be
offering a prize for a mature, already commercialised technology.
They're not offering an incentive that doesn't already exist.

It's as if the Ansari X prize had been for the first company to
successfully run an orbital hotel for 6 months.
