Vigorous efforts are in progress at Baikonur to process Proton M / Breeze M for a dual launch of two RSCC-owned spacecraft, Express-АТ1 and Express-АТ2.

On March 12, Proton M was transferred to the launch pad. Launch teams started about the chores of Day 1 on-pad activities. Early today the pad in Baikonur’s Area 81 saw more efforts scheduled this time for Day 2. The launch vehicle, upper stage booster, and spacecraft are all being handled within the readiness loop, part of which includes joint checkouts of the launcher / upper stage booster control system.
