These spacecraft (and CubeSats) were onboard the Atlas V launch, yesterday:
• X-37B OTV-4 (USA 261)
• GEARRSAT 2 (GEARRS 2)
• LightSail A
• OptiCube 1 (O/C 1)
• OptiCube 2 (O/C 2)
• OptiCube 3 (O/C 3)
• USS Langley
• AeroCube 8A (IMPACT A)
• AeroCube 8B (IMPACT B)
• PSat A (ParkinsonSat A)
Scroll down the AMSAT-UK web site
for a very good picture of the Dispenser, that was attached to the Centaur second stage.
After OTV-4, X-37B was released, the Centaur stage performed a orbital maneuver for release of these small satellites.
BTW, Centaur has now been used for 51-1/2 years by USA on Atlas (and retired Titan boosters).
