Spacecraft "W7" successfully launched into the target orbit and is taken to manage by the customer. / November 25, 2009 /

According to the information sector, operational and technical controls Space Agency spacecraft «Double S 7» in the estimated time was put into the target orbit, separated from the upper block «Breeze-M» and is taken to manage the customer.

The successful launch of the carrier rocket Proton-M upper stage with the «Breeze-M» and spacecraft «Double S 7» was made yesterday, Nov. 24, at 17 hours 19 min. (MSCs) from the Baikonur Cosmodrome.

Start ILV was in normal mode. In accordance with the sequence diagram breeding orbital block (the spacecraft with the upper stage "Briz-M) separated from the third stage of the launch vehicle and continued to autonomous flight. Further injection into the target orbit was carried out by five inclusions sustainer engine booster. The total duration of excretion from the moment of launching of spacecraft to the department amounted to 9 hours 12 minutes.

Contract to start using the rocket Proton-M "entered the European satellite operator Eutelsat and the company International Launch Services Inc. (ILS). The owner of a controlling stake in ILS is the State Research and Production Space Center of MV Khrunichev, a developer and manufacturer of carrier rocket «Proton booster and» Breeze-M ".

Launching spacecraft (SC) W7 was the eighth launch rocket «Proton» in 2009, and 349-m flying start in its history.

For ILS — is the sixth launch in 2009 and the 55th since the start of commercial operation of the rocket «Proton» in April 1996. Proton "for the fifth time was used to launch payloads for the company Eutelsat. In addition, it is — the seventh missile launch by Proton with the spacecraft, manufactured Thales Alenia Space.
