Hypergiant/SEOPS announced they deployed cubesats from the Slingshot, but don't say WHICH satellites or give a release time.
Gunter Krebs and I have asked but no reply yet.

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?

At least they are saying "two CubeSats"

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!

Not entirely clear if the Slingshot in question was launched on NG-13 or CRS 20.

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

The @SEOPSLLC Slingshot  approach is interesting: launch payloads on Cargo Dragon, astronaut-install them on Cygnus hatch. This is the 4th time this has been done:

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.

On May 28-29 the @northropgrumman Cygnus cargo ship SS Robert E Lawrence lowered its orbit from 476 x 483 km to 356 x 360 km in preparation for its deorbit burn which was expected May 29.
