"The STP-2 mission will be launched on SpaceX’s new Falcon Heavy from SLC-40 and is targeted for mid-2015.
The goals of the mission are to launch an Integrated Payload Stack
(IPS) consisting of two co-prime space vehicles (SVs), up to six
auxiliary payloads (APLs) (minimum of two APLs), up to eight separate
Poly-PicoSatellite Orbital Deployers (P-PODs) (TBD cubesats), and
LSC-provided ballast of up to 5,000kg."
