We have had a successful mission with the ILS Proton Breeze M rocket, carrying the KA-SAT satellite built by EADS Astrium. We have had confirmation that the satellite separated from the vehicle on schedule at 2:03 a.m. EST, or 07:03 UTC.

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 five times, and then releasing the satellite into transfer orbit.
