We have had a successful mission with the ILS Proton Rocket, carrying the Intelsat 22 (IS-22) satellite built by Boeing Space & Intelligence Systems for Intelsat. We have had confirmation that the IS-22 satellite separated from the vehicle on schedule at 11:40pm EDT, or 03:40 GMT, 15 hours and 30 minutes after liftoff.

Everything occurred as planned for the first ILS Proton Supersynchronous Mission. After the ignition, shutdown and separation of the ILS Proton’s first three stages, the Breeze M upper stage with the satellite continued the mission, igniting five times, and then releasing the satellite into transfer orbit.
