NanoRacks Kaber Microsat Deployer

The NanoRacks Kaber Microsat Deployer (NanoRacks Microsat Deployer) is a reusable system that provides command and control for satellite deployments from the International Space Station (ISS). NanoRacks developed the Kaber leveraging its experience deploying CubeSats from the ISS. The Kaber enables NanoRacks to support deployment into space of microsatellites up to about 100 kg from the ISS. The Kaber promotes ISS utilization by enabling deployment into orbit for a class of payload developers normally relying on expendable launch vehicles for space access. Microsatellites that are compatible with the NanoRacks Kaber have additional power, volume and communications resources enabling missions in low Earth orbit of more scope and sophistication.

Are there any information, when the first microsat, probably SIMPL, will be deployed by Kaber?

It looks like Kaber will use for deployment the SSRMS, not the JEM-RMS.

It seems, that we have now the first candidate for Kaber.

It seems, that my assumption was wrong.

This could be an important step of the first deployment.
