We have confirmed that the Breeze M upper stage has successfully completed its 3rd & 4th burns, 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 around 00:03 a.m. EDT, or 04:03 GMT. Separation of the Nimiq 6 spacecraft is scheduled to follow the 5th burn completion by about 13 minutes.
