Should this thread be moved to the "Commercial Space Flight General" section, or should we make a similar thread there?  Some of the posts here don't have anything to do with ISS.
Sat deployments really has nothing to do with the rest of the In-Space Hardware Sub Section so I would recommend moving it and a few other threads over. Maybe move this one over to CSFG like you say and rename it as the Secondary Payload deployments General thread and create a new ISS specific Satellite Deployments thread in the actual ISS Sub Section instead of in this Sub section.

Another option would be to create a new dedicated Satellites Section with subsections for either manufacturer or continent (to keep number of subsections short because their are to many nations). I would prefer the continent option.

Coast Guard to deploy 2x cubesats for receiving EPIRB signals.

www.parabolicarc.com/2018/04/30/coast-guard-preparing-launch-satellites/

Each Polar Scout cubesat will pass over the North Pole every 90 to 100 minutes and will be able to detect EPIRB signals from vessels in the Arctic for about 12 minutes on each orbit. The cubesats will circle the earth 15 or 16 times a day, providing more than three hours of search and rescue coverage in the Arctic daily.

These are scheduled to fly on SSO-A, there are probably a couple more links in that thread.

Congratulations to Insight team. The first deep space Marco cubesats were a success, providing live comms relay coverage of landing.

After this success expect to see a lot more cubesats and smallsats used for deep space missions.

An article on Marco cubesats. Now talk on future mission for them. At very least seeing how long they last.

Any future mission will need funding, to pay for ground crew and also DSN time.

When ESA’s planned Hera mission journeys to its target binary asteroid system, it will not be alone. The spacecraft will carry two tiny CubeSats for deployment around – and eventual landing on – the Didymos asteroids.
