    ILS Proton To Launch MEASAT-3

    Payload: MEASAT-3
    Boeing 601HP platform
    Separated mass: approx. 4,765 kg (10,505 lbs)

    Launch Vehicle: Proton M/Breeze M
    Weight at liftoff: 691,272 kg (1.5 million
    lbs), including payload
    Height: 56.2 m (184 ft)

    Launch Time: 5:28 a.m. Dec. 12 Baikonur
    23:28 Dec. 11 GMT
    6:28 p.m. Dec. 11 EST
    3:28 p.m. Dec. 11 PST

    Launch Site: Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan
    Launch Pad 39

    End User: MEASAT Satellite Systems Sdn Bhd, Kuala
    Lumpur, Malaysia

    Satellite Manufacturer: Boeing Satellite Systems, El Segundo, Calif.

    Launch Vehicle Khrunichev State Research and Production
    Manufacturer: Space Center, Moscow

    Launch Services
    Provider: International Launch Services (ILS), McLean,

    Satellite Use: MEASAT-3 will provide high-powered C-band
    coverage over more than 100 countries
    comprising more than 70 percent of the
    world's population, and DTH-quality Ku-band
    coverage over 160 million TV households in
    Malaysia, Indonesia and South Asia.

    Satellite Statistics: -- 24 C-band transponders
    -- 24 Ku-band transponders
    -- Orbital location: 91.5 degrees East
    -- Contractual service life of 15 years

    Mission Profile: The Proton launch vehicle will inject the
    satellite into geosynchronous transfer orbit,
    using a five-burn Breeze M mission design.
    The first three stages of the Proton will use
    a standard ascent trajectory to place the
    Breeze M fourth stage, with the satellite,
    into a suborbital trajectory, from which the
    Breeze M will place itself and the spacecraft
    into a circular parking orbit of 173 km
    (107.5 miles), inclined at 51.5 degrees. Then
    the satellite will be propelled to its
    transfer orbit by additional burns of the
    Breeze M. Following separation from the
    Breeze M, the spacecraft will perform a
    series of liquid apogee engine burns to raise
    perigee, lower inclination and circularize
    the orbit at the geostationary altitude of
    35,786 km (22,236 miles).

    Target Orbit Apogee: 35,786 km (22,236 miles)
    at Separation: Perigee: 7,360 km (4,573 miles)
    Inclination: 16.5 degrees

    Spacecraft Separation: Approximately 9 hours, 12 seconds after

    ILS Mission Statistics: -- 4th ILS Proton mission of 2006
    -- 6th ILS mission overall for 2006
