Yup, because the gubmint ain't got nuttin' beder to do but keep their eye on you!They have plenty to do already. They still seem bent on spending 99% of their time doing almost anything but what the people want.
I think it's a cool idea. However, AFAIK, most inventions that replaced a previous invention, like CDs replacing cassettes, were intended and marketed to do just that, even before they announced it was possible. So I doubt that this one will replace satellites.
With the massive increase in UAVs, I think it is most likely to be used as a UAV, to keep permanent air-control of a region, say in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Libya, Venezuela, and anywhere else that is currently considered "an enemy of the West".
