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 begin around 9:15 pm EDT, or 01:15 GMT and last for approximately 6 minutes. Separation of the W2A spacecraft is scheduled to follow the 5th burn completion by about 15 minutes.
