Thanks @EU1SAT from those two sets it looks like that the OBJECT SP(48868) fits better. As the TLE set are still in TBA(To Be Assigned) status, we should wait for identification. For now we just follow OBJECT SP in DB and Network for MIR-SAT1.

The other object looks like that was from the same deployment… but I have no idea which satellite it is.

EDIT: Two CubeSats successfully deployed from "Kibo"! | JAXA Human Spaceflight Technology Directorate it confirms the two satellites with one being a “business” one but no more info which one.

Unattended MIR-Sat1 decodes here overnight (29-June) included “digipeater_enable = True / pacsat_broadcast_enable = True / pacsat_broadcast_in_progress = True”.

Tried 9k6 digi uplink on 85° pass just ended (1500utc 29-June) w/ no luck. Can anyone confirm if ‘CQ via 3B8MIR-1’ is the digi address? Thanks!

As we can see in the attached images object 48868 is without a doubt MIR-SAT1

Let’s wait for the TLE sets to be assigned from space-track.org side, so we can also identify it in DB and Network.

Now that TLE sets are assigned we have identified that MIR-SAT1 is OBJECT 98067SP(48868), more details can be found in ikhnos-identification-48868.

By the way, the mystery “business” satellite is G-SATELLITE 2(BD-28).

Unfortunately space-track.org has mis-identified the two objects in their catalog.
