Seems like they are still confirming whether 1 of the 4 SNIPE cubesats - hidden in the payload separation camera view - was deployed or not; otherwise all separation went well.

After launch, the Nuri was put into the target orbit according to the set flight sequence, and successfully separated and settled the next-generation small satellite No. 2.

In the case of the 6 Cube Satellites, which are auxiliary satellites, it was confirmed that the ejection proceeded normally.

Satellite manifest?
NEXTSat-2
SNIPE A/B/C/D (cubesats)
Two more cubesats, but we thought there would be three more?

7 satellites total?

I got to see the launch in person about 18 km away from the launchpad. Here's the recording of the event from my camera.


Visibility was terrible for the faraway watchers the day before due to the mist and fine dust, so the one-day delay was a blessing in disguise for me. The overhanging clouds meant that the launcher became invisible just a minute into flight, so I wasn't able to see the stage separation happening.

Deployment of NEXTSat-2 and 6 cubesats except SNIPE-3 was confirmed, but SNIPE-3 does not appear to be separated from Nuri

During this third launch, Nuri launched the next-generation small satellite No. 2 and six cube satellites sequentially at the target altitude.

However, it is presumed that the Toyosaat 3 was not ejected because the signal for opening and closing the ejection pipe door and the acceleration measurement value of the 3rd stage of the Nuri were not confirmed.

Hangwooyeon plans to conduct an analysis to determine the cause.
thank you
