"Proton" put into orbit an American satellite

The Proton-M launch vehicle, the launch of which was postponed twice, put the American communications satellite Sirius FM-6 into the calculated orbit. This was reported in Roscosmos.


"Proton" launched on the eve of about 22: 08 MSK from the Baikonur cosmodrome. At the estimated time - in 07: 19 Moscow time Saturday - the satellite separated from the upper stage "Breeze-M" and went into orbit. “Thus, the Russian part of the program for its launching into orbit is completed,” RIA quotes.News"representative of Roscosmos.

The launch date of the Sirius FM-6 was postponed twice. At first, October 20 was postponed for a day, and then indefinitely. As noted in Roscosmos, this was done at the request of the Americans due to problems at the reception station in South Africa.

Sirius satellite was launched under a contract with International Launch Services Inc. (ILS), which has the exclusive right to marketing and commercial operation of the Protons. Sirius FM-6 is owned by satellite operator Sirius XM Radio (Satellite CD Radio, Inc).

Satellites of this type will operate in geostationary orbit. It is capable of emitting twice as powerful a signal as its predecessors and, thus, will become the largest and most powerful spacecraft of the company. The coverage area of ​​Sirius is the territory of North America. The lifetime of the satellite is more than 15 years.

The current launch of "Proton" is the second since the accident of a carrier of this type, which took place on July 2. Recall, July 2 rocket was supposed to put into orbit three GLONASS satellites. However, at the tenth second of the flight, the rocket changed its trajectory, caught fire, fell on the territory of the Baikonur cosmodrome and exploded.

A special commission investigating the catastrophe concluded that the angular velocity sensors were installed incorrectly on the Proton. Following the investigation, three employees, including the deputy head of the Khrunichev Center, lost their posts, and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev announced the head of Roskosmos, Vladimir Popovkin, a reprimand for improper performance of duties.

    I am glad for Proton, but he would be even more happy if OUR satellites, especially GLONASS ...

        There wasn’t anything strange, there weren’t any freights, and grandmas need to be written off, so Protons are falling with GLONAS satellites (more precisely, with their mock-ups).

          What thread was a dummy instead of 3 satellites.
          Loot type worked, then 3 more to build - again loot.
          Something like this...
          It was definitely a diversion.

            I see that our satellites are falling, while imported birds are taking off. Somehow selectively, somehow suspiciously - am I really paranoid? Can shake this office properly? not to arrange an official leapfrog, but to recall the successful manager Lavrentiy Palych ...

      Apparently they know the true reason, unlike our FSB. Therefore, it’s GLONAS
      satellites stubbornly do not enter orbit For decades, we can not create a full
      grouping - equivalent to GPS. It seems that many "moles" have dug in in our country, from bottom to top, and modern "mole catchers" do not even catch mice.

    Protons fly it well. It’s only a pity that it’s not with our companions or something else. It would also be nice to attach something to their satellites without a pale to read the information, and at the crucial moment to destroy the satellite altogether. Like, you yourself release such shit, everything breaks down.

    Protons are not bad launch vehicles. This confirms the lines of their use. But what falls, somehow does not fit into a logical chain - either for "foreigners" one requirement for quality, but for their own another, or someone's planned action.

    In general, they’re not happy about anything. Most likely, when the Russian satellites are launched, theft of money or the accumulation of capital by senior persons occurs. It is not possible to do this with Western satellites, if they don’t plant it, they’ll certainly lose their bread place.

    The Sirius satellite was launched under a contract with International Launch Services Inc. (ILS), which has the exclusive right to marketing and commercial exploitation of Protons. Sirius FM-6 belongs to the satellite operator Sirius XM Radio (Satellite CD Radio, Inc).

    I didn’t understand something. To launch protons, now I need to ask permission from the Americans?

    In 1993, GKNPTs, RSC Energia and the American corporation Lockheed created the Lockheed-Khrunichev-Energia joint venture (LHE). The main goal of the joint venture was the marketing of launch services for the Proton LV. Within the framework of this enterprise, the GKNPTs ensured the manufacture of the launch vehicle, the adaptation of the payload to it, the development and manufacture of the fairing and the provision of launch services. The joint venture "LHE" was reorganized into the JV International Launch Services Inc on June 7, 1995 .. The majority stake in ILS belongs to the Russian State Space Research and Production Center named after M.V. Khrunichev (Moscow), the developer and manufacturer of the launch vehicle " Proton "and" Angara ".

    So this is a joint venture, the leader of which is the Khrunichev Research and Production Center. For this reason, they take me envy:
    The life of the satellite is more than 15 years.

      Perhaps the launch cost and the set of services are different for us and the Americans. That is, the Americans pay additionally for checks, so that the sensors are not put upside down, so that telemetry is at the entire stage of the output and the like, in short, they "saw the printed loot" in full in terms of the topvar.

      And ours save on checks, the main thing is that the priest waved a broom, and as a result, the same launch vehicles from Roscosmos and International Launch Services Inc fly a little differently.

      This is just an assumption.

    zennon, the exclusive right to commercial operation, it’s the same as with gas, for example. The deposit and production belongs to Russia, and where to sell and at what prices the Americans are already deciding. I won’t argue, but nevertheless they let these Yankees into the very-most bins, nowhere else to go, an echo of the dashing 90s. It remains to sell the right to approve the routes of Russian nuclear submarines in the oceans.

    No, we launch our own load. The task of Amers is to search for commercial cargo over the hill. Do not forget the largest manufacturers of satellite mattresses. By the way, Lockheed itself is the largest corporation in the world military-industrial complex, which has a bunch of joint ventures with many countries. space products. They have a Lockheed Martin Space Systems division. They have vast experience in organizing, licensing, certified
