MOSCOW, January 15. /TASS/. Russian booster Proton-M with the British satellite Inmarsat-5 F2 atop is due to lift off from the Baikonur launching pad in Kazakhstan on January 30.
The rocket will put the communications satellite in super-synchronous transfer orbit at an altitude of 65,000 kilometers, the US company International Launch Services in charge of commercial launches by the Proton launch vehicles said on Thursday.
Separation of the Inmarsat-5 F2 satellite is scheduled to take place 15 hours 31 minutes after the lift-off.
Inmarsat-5 F2 is the second out of three satellites of the fifth generation produced to provide communications services for North and South Americas and the Atlantic region.
The first space module was successfully launched on the Proton rocket in December 2013.
