Breeze M Delivered to Baikonur For Sirius 5 Satellite Launch

11.05.2012
 The Breeze M upper stage for a Proton launch of the Sirius 5 satellite, built by Space Systems/Loral for SES, was delivered today to Baikonur Launch Base.

The Breeze M upper stage was brought to Baikonur’s Yubileyny Airfield aboard an Antonov cargo plane operated by Polyot. The plane landed at approximately 9:25 a.m. Moscow Time.

The launch service contract for the launch of the Sirius 5 satellite on a Proton launch vehicle was signed by the Russian-American International Launch Services Inc. based in Reston, USA. ILS has the exclusive rights to market Proton in the global market. 

The Khrunichev Space Center, the designer and manufacturer of the Proton launch vehicle and Breeze M upper stage, is the majority owner of ILS.

There are rumour that the launch is delayed to June 22-24 due to Intelsat 19 problems.

Given the problems this week with the recent Loral satellite, it is not unexpected that there will be a review of SES-5, another Loral product.

Satellite Use:                       
 SES’ high-powered Ku-band beams will bring incremental capacity over Africa, and the Nordic and Baltic countries to support DTH services. Its comprehensive C-band beams cover Africa, the Middle East and Europe to enable services such as GSM backhaul, VSAT applications, maritime communications and video distribution. SES-5 will also carry the first hosted L-band payload for the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS). The EGNOS payload, which was developed by the European Space Agency (ESA) and the European Commission (EC), will help verify, improve, and report on the reliability and accuracy of navigation positioning signals in Europe.
 
Satellite Statistics:             
 __Features EGNOS Payload
 __24 C-band transponders
 __36 Ku-band transponders
 __Planned orbital location: 5 degrees east longitude
 __Anticipated service life: 15 years
 
Mission Profile:                   
 The Proton M launch vehicle, utilizing a 5-burn Breeze M mission design, will lift off from Pad 24 at Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan, with the SES-5 satellite on board. The first three stages of the Proton will use a standard ascent profile to place the orbital unit (Breeze M upper stage and the SES-5 satellite) into a sub-orbital trajectory. From this point in the mission, the Breeze M will perform planned mission maneuvers to advance the orbital unit first to a circular parking orbit, then to an intermediate orbit, followed by a transfer orbit, and finally to a geostationary transfer orbit. Separation of the SES-5 satellite is scheduled to occur approximately 9 hours, 12 minutes after liftoff.
                                                           
Target Orbit at Separation:

The launch is postponed by one day (for now) due to problems with Proton-M rocket's control system.

ILS PROTON LAUNCH OF SES-5 SATELLITE POSTPONED 24 HOURS

 

 

BAIKONUR COSMODROME, Kazakhstan, June 19, 2012 – The launch of an ILS Proton launch vehicle with the SES-5 satellite was postponed today for one day for technical reasons with the launch vehicle. The satellite is being launched for SES of Luxembourg and was built by Space Systems/Loral. The launch is now set for June 21 at 12:24 am local time.

The delay was called after Khrunichev engineers at the launch site received an out of tolerance telemetry reading on a first stage subsystem during pre-flight testing. The replacement unit has been installed and fully tested; all test results are nominal. The vehicle and satellite remain in a safe configuration at the launch site.


Online Galactic Penguin SST

Roscosmos said that the problem was not fixed and the rocket requires rollback to the HIF for fixing.  ::)

The problem is with control actuator on the first stage of Proton-M rocket. It will be replaced.

ILS Proton Launch of SES-5 Satellite Postponed


BAIKONUR COSMODROME, Kazakhstan, June 20, 2012 – The launch of an ILS Proton launch vehicle with the SES-5 satellite was postponed today for technical reasons with the launch vehicle. The satellite is being launched for SES of Luxembourg and was built by Space Systems/Loral. The launch date will be determined at a later time.
On June 18, Khrunichev engineers at the launch site received an out of tolerance telemetry reading on a first stage subsystem during pre-flight testing. However, based on additional pre-flight testing performed on June 19, it was determined that further investigation is necessary, requiring the launch vehicle be returned to the processing hall for additional testing. The vehicle and satellite remain in a safe configuration at the launch site.

Updated information will be posted on the ILS web site, www.ilslaunch.com, as it becomes available.
