We have had a successful mission with the ILS Proton M Breeze M rocket, carrying the EUTELSAT 3D satellite built by Thales Alenia Space for Eutelsat Communications. We have had confirmation that the satellite separated from the vehicle on schedule at 9:15 PM Eastern Time, or 1:15 AM GMT, 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 Eutelsat 3D satellite aboard continued the mission, igniting five times, and finally releasing the satellite into transfer orbit.
