A belated congratulations to Rocketlab, Unseenlabs, BlackSky and USAF Space Command for the successful launch! Our power went off just a few minutes before deployment, so I had to wait until this morning to reply.

Nothing yet. Expected they would've tweeted something by now if successful given it wasn't a secret.
