We have had a successful mission with the ILS Proton M Breeze M rocket, carrying the ANIK G1 satellite built by SSL for Telesat. We have had confirmation that the satellite separated from the vehicle on schedule at 11:49 PM Eastern Time, or 3:49 AM GMT, 9 hours and 13 minutes after liftoff.

Everything occurred as planned with ignition, shutdown and separation of the Proton’s first three stages. Then the Breeze M upper stage with the Anik G1 satellite aboard continued the mission, igniting five times, and then releasing the satellite into transfer orbit.
