 As a lurker...

Perhaps someone knows some illuminating information or speculation.

Why have Landsat and DMSP and some other flights NOT carried small satellites,
CubeSats, etc? They likely have plenty of performance, etc.

While NRO flights like the launch of USA 247, International Designator 2013-072
scattered subsatellites all over the place?

Launch of USA 238, International Designator 2012-048 - scattered many others. 

Any ideas?
