This is a follow-on mission of the Ziyuan-3 satellite launched in early 2012.

Delayed to 2015, this might be one of the first launch of the new year?

I know Satellogic's CEO. They are planning a 19 satellite constellation. I will find out more and work on it.

Aleph-1 is not a payload of its own, but —uSat-1 & 2 are the first satellites in the Aleph-1 constellation.
The —uSats are secondary payloads foing into a 500 km SSO together with a yet unknown payload (likely a Yaogan).

Here is the information about these satellites, that i currently have: http://space.skyrocket.de/doc_sdat/nusat-1.htm

Little more news:
"Argentinian Earth observation satellites NuSat-1 and NuSat-2 will be launched on 30th April 2016 on atop of Long March 4B rocket from Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center. They will be part of Aleph constellation of commercial Earth observation satellites by startup Satellogic Company. Unique feature of Aleph constellation will be commercially available real-time Earth imaging. For founder of Satellogic,  Emiliano Kargieman, ultimate goal is constellation of 300 satellites. NuSat-1 and NuSat-2 are beginning of the fleet - they are small spacecrafts with weight at 35 kg and with dimensions at 75 cm x 40 cm x 43 cm (H x W x L). Both will be equipped in camera operating in visible light and infrared. Onboard U/V linear transponder provided by AMSAT-LU (amateur radio satellite organization in Argentina) for communication with radio amateur community; additional U/V transponder (2 W of output power) for 8 GHz downlink and 2 GHz uplink will be operating on 100 kHz bandwidth. For backup telemetry, designers are considering UHF transponder. Long March 4B will be utilized for lifting both satellites into 500 km SSO orbit with inclination at 97.5į. Long March 4B is usually utilized for LEO and SSO missions. It is liquid fueled rocket with three stages operating since 1999."

Resolution of the stereo mapping camera was improved from 3.5 to 2.7m (see http://www.chinaspaceflight.com/satellite/Ziyuan/Ziyuan3-02.html).
