Diwata-2 Cubesat, a good candidate to fly inside HTV-7.

Diwata 2 is not a cubesat and, contrary to Diwata 1, it is not designed for ISS deployment. Diwata-2 will fly with GOSAT-2 on a H-2A-202 rocket.

Thanks for correction, but Diwata 1 was neither a cubesat.

Airbus delivers new life support system for the ISS
Quote
Friedrichshafen, 19/03/2018 Airbus has delivered the ACLS (Advanced Closed Loop System), an advanced life support system to purify air and produce oxygen for the International Space Station (ISS). The system also produces water, more or less as a by‑product of the technology. ACLS was developed by Airbus for the European Space Agency (ESA) and is set to be used as a technology demonstrator on the ISS from summer 2018.

The ACLS extracts a portion of the carbon dioxide in the cabin atmosphere and, using hydrogen obtained from splitting water molecules, converts it to methane and water in what is known as the Sabatier process. Oxygen is then produced from this water using electrolysis. This increases overall system efficiency and reduces the need for supplies from Earth.

The ACLS will now be installed in the HTV-7 space transporter at the Tanegashima Space Center in Japan and is due to be transported to the ISS in August 2018.

Because my first guess was wrong, I suggest these cubesats as a candidate for HTV-7:
- BHUTAN-1 , MAYA-1 and UiTMSAT-1 as part of the BIRD project

- STARS-Me A Mother and B Daughter

- HSKSAT

It's very interesting! It's possible to use this  small capsule in the other flight of HTV?

As I have learned today, the BIRDS-2 satellites will launched already in June 2018, so we can exclude them from HTV-7.
