Proton-M launched the Spanish satellite Amazonas-5 into space

18
As the RIA News, the heavy Proton-M launch vehicle with the Breeze-M upper stage was launched from Baikonur on September 11 at the estimated time - 22.23 Moscow time.



Shortly after launch, the head space unit as part of the Briz-M upper stage and the Spanish telecommunications satellite Amazonas-5 separated from the third stage of the Proton-M launch vehicle.

The separation of the upper stage with the satellite took place. It is expected that the separation of the spacecraft from the Briz-M upper stage will take place approximately on 7.35 Moscow time already on September 12.

- Said the representative of Roscosmos.

It is assumed that the spacecraft will be launched into a geostationary orbit at an altitude of 36 thousand km.

The satellite launched into space was released by Space Systems Loral (USA) by order of Hispasat (Spain). It is designed to provide services in the field of television, corporate networks and telephone communications in South and Central America.

The launch agreement was signed with International Launch Services Inc. (ILS, Reston, USA), promoting "Proton" on the foreign market and being a subsidiary of the Khrunichev Center - developer and manufacturer of Proton carriers and Briz-M booster blocks. Start-up insurance is provided by SOGAZ. It concerns the Proton-M launch vehicle, the Breeze-M upper stage, the head fairing, the transition system for launching the spacecraft and the satellite itself.

      Yeah. Spies against Russia in a geostationary orbit over the territory of South and Central America. fool

        That is, the power of his equipment is not enough, say, to fix this or that radiation in a certain area or territory of our country to determine the presence-absence of the same air defense systems-missile defense? ??

            Previously, there were downsides to this case. The author would now sit with minus twenty, and would not write at all anymore, he would gain his mind.
            PS The fact that the minuses affected the rating is not convincing. The country’s policy reached the VO as well. No one has the right to scold senior officials. On our website, this was expressed in minuses.

        Yeah, do you read sometimes? hi Thank you for your good old sticky "sores". Missed the hell.
        But the man probably meant that we are helping unfriendly countries. That's where everything from Oblonsky mixed up.

          Is Spain not a country friendly to Russia? request

            Well, in foreign policy this is not expressed strongly, but at the official level - yes. The Spaniards will not miss the opportunity to complain. This is certainly not a hostile attitude, but not a friendly one.

      Yes.
      Only harder - because you need multiple inclusion.
      Therefore, it has a special name.

      A funny coincidence - in terms of energy, the output to the GSO is approximately equal to fly to the Moon.
      And for launching the spacecraft at the GSO at a sufficiently large latitude of the launch point, above ~ 28 ° (this is done for the Russian Baikonur and Plisetsk cosmodromes), it is energetically more profitable to use not a “direct” flight scheme, but a “bypass”, with a preliminary approach to the Moon. In this case, a lunar gravitational maneuver is performed with a passive change in inclination and perigee distance and then an approach to the GSO is carried out

    The Breeze family of booster blocks - Breeze-M, Breeze-KM - is an example of an apparatus developed after the collapse of the USSR. There were several reasons for this development:

    On the basis of the UR-100 ICBM, the Rokot conversion launch vehicle was developed, for which an accelerating block (RB) would be useful.
    At Proton, the DM RB was used to launch to the GSO, which used the oxygen-kerosene pair that was not native to Proton, had an autonomous flight time of only 7 hours, and its load capacity could be increased.

    The developer of the accelerated blocks of the Breeze family is the Federal State Unitary Enterprise “State Space Research and Production Center named after MV Khrunichev”. In 1990-1994 there were test launches and, in May-June 2000, flights of both versions of Breeze - Breeze-KM for Rokot and Breeze-M for Proton took place. The main difference between them is the presence of additional discharged fuel tanks on the Breeze-M, which provide a larger margin of characteristic speed (delta-V) and allow the output of heavier satellites.
