November 21 –

DubaiSat-2, STSat-3, WNISAT-1, SkySat-1, UniSat-5, AprizeSat-7, AprizeSat-8, BRITE-PL (Lem), BPA-3, containers with CubeSats (UWE-3, Delfi-n3Xt, Triton 1/2, Cinema 2/3, Dove 4, FUNcube-1, I-Cube, GOMX-1, [email protected] 2, PUCP-SAT 1, Humsat-D, BeakerSat, Eagle 1, Wren, Pocket-PUCP, QBScout 1)

– Dnepr – Dombarovskiy 13 – 07:11:29 UTC



Dove-4 should be a Planet Labs payload.

http://planet-labs.com/

SkySat-1 is SkyBox Imaging

http://www.skyboximaging.com


Unisat-5 comes from the University of Rome.

http://www.gaussteam.com/activities-services-and-products/launch-services/dnepr-cluster-2013/

Apparently, a team from the University of Rome is securing customers for Dnepr:

"Five Cubesats (PUCPSAT, I-CUBE 1, HUMSAT-D, [email protected] 2, Dove-4) and three PocketQubeSats (BeakerSat, QBScout, WREN) will be flown and then released in orbit from the UniSat-5, the GAUSS designed and realized satellite that hosts the PEPPOD and MRFOD systems."

Concerning the Triton cubesats: Only Triton-1 will be on board of this launch. Triton-2 will follow in 2014

There are a few differences between Anik and Gunter's lists of payloads on this launch:

Five satellites are in Gunter's list but not in Anik's: $50SAT, CubeBug-2, NEE-02, HiNCube and ZACube
One satellite is in Anik's list but not in Gunter's: First-Move

Does anyone have any information on which of these satellites are aboard the rocket?

First-Move is on board, sharing an ISIPod with UWE-3 and Velox-P2 (missing in both lists)

I have got some confirmations and clarifications from the GAUSS UniSat-5 team:

Four Cubesats (PUCPSAT, I-CUBE 1, HUMSAT-D, Dove-4) and four PocketQubeSats (BeakerSat, QBScout, WREN and $50Sat) are on board of UniSat-5

Eagle-1 and Eagle-2 are alternative designations of BeakerSat and $50Sat.

Italian Microsat to Deploy Amateur Radio Satellites
http://amsat-uk.org/2012/05/25/italian-microsat-to-deploy-amateur-radio-satellites/

Quote
The Italian microsat UniSat-5 will itself deploy a number of additional amateur radio satellites. Among them should be the CubeSats PUCP-SAT-1, HumSat-D, estar-2, Icube-1 and PocketQubes Wren, Eagle-1, Eagle-2 ($50Sat), QB-Scout1. PUCP-SAT-1 intends to subsequently release a further satellite Pocket-PUCP.

So as I understand it we have:  (trying to sort out the distribution among the various P-POD deployers)

Larger payloads
 Dubaisat 2, Skysat 1, STSat-3, Aprizesat-7 and 8

UTIAS NLS9 payloads  WNISAT-1, Lem (BRITE-PL GNB), and the 2U cubesat GOMX-1 in its own pod
ISIPOD with  UWE-3, VELOX-P2, First-MOVE  (all 1U)
P?POD with 2U CubeBug-2 and 1U Krysaor   
P?POD with  FUNcube-1, HiNCube-1, ZACUBE-1  (all 1U)
P?POD with 3U Delfi-n3Xt
P?POD with 3U Triton 1
P?POD with 3U CINEMA 2
P?POD with 3U CINEMA 3
Unisat-5 containing
      PEPPOD 1  deploying  U ICUBE1, 1U HUMSAT-D, 1U PUCPSAT1/PocketPUCP,
      PEPPOD 2  deploying  3U Dove-4
      MRFOD deploying  QBScout-1, Beakersat/Eagle-1, WREN, $50Sat/Eagle-2 which are 2.5, 2.5, 1, 1.5U PocketQubs

and we infer that  [email protected], earlier said to be a Unisat-deployed 1U in PEPPOD 3, is not on the manifest.

I think, that is correct.

I have not been able to track down detailed information on [email protected] and i am not sure, if it has even been completed.

FYI, it is PocketQube with an 'e'. It was changed by Prof Bob Twiggs, hence QubeScout-S1 etc.

Thanks

Thanks for that info.

I hate the PocketQubes... I'm going to have to redo all my databases to allow me to enter masses less than 1 kg :-)

Planet Labs' Dove 3 is also onboard the Dnepr, in an ISIPOD.
