Soyuz cluster launch, (C)Space Report

On Jul 14 Roskosmos launched a Soyuz with the Kanopus-V-IK
imaging satellite and 72 small secondary payloads.

The Soyuz placed the Fregat upper stage on a suborbital trajectory.
Fregat made multiple burns to several different orbits to dispense
its payloads.

  1034-1035   Fregat burn 6            485  x 485 
  1418-1441   Deployed 48 Flock-2k Dove satellites
  1451-1453   Fregat burn 7          - 50? x 485
  1518        Fregat reentry

FLP, the Flying Laptop, is from the U. of Stuttgart. The 120kg satellite
has a Ka-band propagation
study experiment and a multispectral camera.

NORSAT-1 and 2 are Norwegian Space Center satellites with AIS payloads
and an experiment to measure total solar irradiance. They use a variant
of the Toronto UTIAS/SFL GNB bus.

WNISAT-1R is a 40 kg Japanese commercial weather satellite using the
AXELSPACE Hodoyoshi bus.

Technosat from the Tech. U of Berlin carries a variety of technology
tests using the new TUBiX20 satellite bus.

MKA-N 1 and 2 are  6U cubesats built by Russia's Dauria Aerospace for
Rosksmos with 22-m resolution multispectral imagers.

CICERO 1 to 3 are 6U cubesats for the US company GeoOptics built by
Tyvak, with GPS-RO weather payloads.

Corvus-BC 1 and 2 are 6U cubesats from the US company AstroDigital
(formerly Canopus) with imaging payloads.

NanoACE is a 3U technology test cubesat from Tyvak.
Iskra-MAI-85 is a 3U student cubesat from MAI (Moscow Aviation Inst.);
I don't know what payloads are on it.

Ekvador-UTE-YuZGU is a 1U cubesat built by students at the SW State
Univ in Kursk in collaboration with Ecuadorian engineers from
Universidad Tecnologica Equinoccial in Quito. I don't know whether
it will be UN-registered as Russian or Ecuadorian.

Mayak ("beacon") is a 3U cubesat from Moscow Polytechnic University.
It is designed to deploy a highly reflective structure about 2m across
which will act as a drag brake but also as an optical beacon.
The intent is that Mayak will be one of the brightest objects in the
night sky; different calculations put the maximum brightness in the
mag -5 to mag -10 range; the lower (and more likely) value still would
make it brighter than the ISS and potentially annoying to astronomical
sky surveys.

The mission also deployed 8 SpireGlobal 3U-cubesat Lemur satellites
and 48 Planet 3U-cubesat Dove imaging  satellites forming the Flock-2k
