We have had a successful mission with the Proton M Breeze M rocket, carrying the TURKSAT-4A satellite built by Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, (MELCO). We have confirmation that the satellite separated from the vehicle on schedule at 1:22 a.m. EST, or 12:22 GMT, approximately 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 satellite continued the mission, igniting five times, and then releasing the satellite into transfer orbit.
