Quote:Of the 104 small satellites (aka nano-satellites), 96 belong to the United States while Israel, Kazakhstan, the United Arab Emirates, Switzerland and the Netherlands are the other foreign clients.

A majority of the satellites have earth-imaging capability and belong to a US company named Planet.

An Indian cartographic satellite, believed to be capable of taking high resolution images is also on board. It is expected to be used to monitor regional arch rivals Pakistan and China.

Also: The ISRO have launched 180 foreign satellites since 1999. The US is by far their biggest customer with 114 satellites launched. (India launches record-breaking 104 satellites from single rocket | Science | The Guardian)
