MOSCOW, October 25 (Itar-Tass) - A Russian Proton-M carrier rocket with a Briz-M booster and a U.S. Sirium FM-6 radio satellite has been successfully launched from the Baikonur space pad in Kazakhstan.
“The launch was made at 22:09 Moscow time on Friday from Baikonur’s 200th launching site,” a spokesman for the Russian Space Agency (Roscosmos) told Itar-Tass.
Sirius FM-6 is a new, high-power satellite designed to operate in a Geostationary orbit (GEO). This satellite will be the seventh SSL-built spacecraft in the SIRIUS XM Radio fleet and will provide nearly double the power of the satellites in SIRIUS XM's existing, in-orbit constellation, continuing to improve service for SIRIUS subscribers. Sirius FM-6 will carry an X-band uplink and an S-band downlink payload. With almost 20 kilowatts end-of-life power, it is one of the world's most powerful satellites being built today.
