We have had a successful mission with the Proton M Breeze M rocket, carrying the Sirius FM-6 satellite built by SSL. We have confirmation that the satellite separated from the vehicle on schedule at 11:20 p.m. EDT, or 03:20 UTC, 9 hours and 11 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.
