MOSCOW, June 3 (Itar-Tass) - The Briz-M upper stage with a SES-6 telecommunications satellite has successfully separated from the Proton-M launch vehicle, a spokesman for the Russian Space Agency told Itar-Tass.
“The upper stage separated from the launch vehicle nine minutes after the launch, at 13:28 Moscow time, on Monday. The upper stage will put the telecommunications satellite to the designated orbit in line with the schedule,” the spokesman said.
The Protom-M booster rocket was launched from the Baikonur space pad at 13:18 Moscow time on Monday. It is planned that the satellite will be put to orbit at 04:49 a.m. Moscow time, on June 4.
The SES-6 satellite built by Astrium for SES World Skies will replace the NSS-806 and will provide a significant capacity expansion. The expanded Ku-band payload of SES-6 will offer a substantially enhanced coverage and capacity in North America, Central and South America. Based on a Eurostar E3000 model, the 6,100 kilogram satellite will have a design life of 15 years. The SES-6 launch was contracted by the Russian-U.S. company International Launch Services.
