We have had a successful mission with the ILS Proton Rocket, carrying the QuetzSat-1 satellite built by Space Systems/Loral for SES. We have had confirmation that the QuetzSat-1 satellite separated from the vehicle on schedule at 11:45pm EDT, or 03:45 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 five times, and then releasing the satellite into transfer orbit.
