We have confirmed that the Breeze M upper stage has successfully completed its 3rd burn and 4th burn, as well as jettisoning its additional propellant tank. The vehicle is now in a 5-hour coast period, during which we will have nothing to report. The 5th burn is scheduled to start at 10:25pm EST, or 03:25 GMT, and last approximately 5 minutes. Separation of the EchoStar XVI satellite will follow the 5th burn MECO by approximately 14 minutes.
