Last night @Hypergiant successfully deployed two Slingshot CubeSats with @Space_Station @northropgrumman @SEOPSLLC . They will be in orbit for a couple of weeks and deorbit when Cygnus re-enters the Atmosphere. Go team!
Everyone reading this who wants to know should email or tweet them asking the same question, maybe then they will learn to be more forthcoming in future?
Object 45605, released from the Cygnus cargo ship, has been given the name ULTP in the SpaceTrack catalog. I believe this stands for UbiquitiLink Test Payload and confirms it is one of the Lynk payloads. Previous Lynk experiments remained attached to their Cygnus craft.
Clarification on the Cygnus deployment (thanks to @SEOPSLLC and to Ben Lamm): Cygnus carried an attached Lynk test payload which extended an antenna; it also deployed one free flying cubesat for @LynkTheWorld at 2325 UTC May 13. Both payloads went up on SPX-20
There is also 1 attached payload, currentlWe deployed 2 free flyers. We also have a hosted payload that deployed its antenna and uses Cygnus as the bus to fly.y undergoing operations, attached to Cygnus, which will burn up on re-entry at the conclusion of the Cygnus Mission. @LynktheWork will remain on orbit for years, continuing its mission.

Today, our NG-13 Cygnus spacecraft completed its mission after delivering approximately 7,500 pounds of cargo to the @Space_Station
