USA 295, 296, 297

USA 295, 296 and 297 are unidentified small satellites launched with the X-37B OTV-5 space plane.

No details on these satellites are known. They were likely CubeSats.

These satellites were launched in 2017 together with X-37B OTV-5. Likely they were deployed from the X-37B, but they were not announced at the time. The satellites were only registered i early 2020, after the X-37B OTV-5 had ended, hence the out of sequence USA numbers.
