RadioSkaf's Alexander, RA3WOK, just wrote me that they do, indeed, suspect battery failure of the ARISSat-1.
Investigation and plans for deployment continue.
"According to preliminary information the problem is a failure of the battery ... "
"In the near future, batteries will be on Earth. It cannot be kept on the ISS."
"The situation will improve in June and July, when scheduled launching of ARISSat-1."
