Sea Launch about its launch failure and Failure Review Oversight BoardMore...

Sea Launch confirms the following information concerning the failure that occurred at Sea Launch during the launch of Intelsat-27:
- Integrated Launch Vehicle Zenit-3SL successfully completed all pre-launch processing activities, with all systems and environments within requirements up to the liftoff, which occurred on January 31 at 22:55:59 PST (on February 1 at 6:55:59 UTC/10:55:59 Moscow time).
-  At approximately 11.4 seconds into flight, the Zenit flight control system detected an exceedance of pre-programmed roll and yaw limits and responded appropriately with activation of the on-board sequence to shut down the main engine RD-171M on the first stage, which is designed to ensure a safe outcome in the event of vehicle loss of control.
-  In accordance with the flight termination logic, the main engine thrust was terminated 20 seconds into flight, resulting in impact of the Zenit-3SL with the spacecraft with the Pacific Ocean surface approximately 4 km from the Odyssey Launch Platform.
