We have had a successful mission with the ILS Proton Rocket, carrying the AsiaSat 7 satellite built by Space Systems/Loral for AsiaSat. We have had confirmation that the AsiaSat 7 satellite separated from the vehicle on schedule at 11:23pm EST, or 03:23 GMT, 9 hours and 13 minute 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 satellite continued the mission, igniting four times, and then releasing the satellite into transfer orbit.
