I finally got the answer of what the mysterious sprinklers at TNSC are used for: to prevent any grass fires happening after a launch.  ::)

yes

The performance of the H-IIA (202) to a 800 km SSO is about 4400 kg - higher than the Delta II but lower than the smallest Atlas V / Delta IV / Soyuz-Fregat.

We're expecting 6 objects in the catalog after launch: Radar-4, Demo Satellite, H-IIA second stage, 4/4D-LC lower fairing halves (two), and intersatellite adapter.
