The crew then installed the Small Fine Arm Attachment Mechanism (SAM) and Multi-Purpose Experiment Platform (MPEP) in preparation for the Japanese Small Satellite Orbital Deployers (J-SSOD) to be delivered on HTV-6.

Science/Utilization: JSSOD #5, 6 and NRCSD #9 
Maybe the NRCSD number is incorrect, because NRCSD# 9 was already done in September.

There was a Nanoracks tweet - see this thread https://twitter.com/planet4589/status/779477824864387072

From the research I've done; H-III doesn't seem to be any more powerful than H-IIB - just designed to be cheaper and faster to deploy.
