PredaSAR Corporation has chosen SpaceX to launch its first 48 advanced commercial Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellites on SpaceX’s Falcon 9 launch vehicle, PredaSAR reported on Tuesday. Tyvak Nano-Satellite Systems will serve as the launch integration provider and spacecraft manufacturer.

Edit: seems the first one will go up on a rideshare, then the 47 others on separate flights. A big win!

Not sure if this is 48 satellites on one flight, or multiple. Big win though!

What kind of wastrels would dump a perfectly good booster in the ocean after just one use?
