Keldysh Research Center, the leading Russian entity for rocket engines.

International Launch Services (ILS) has formed a Failure Review Oversight Board (FROB) which will review the Commission's final report and corrective action plan, in accordance with U.S. and Russian government export control regulations.

The FROB will begin in Moscow on January 30thand consists of ILS customers, industry subject experts, and insurance industry representatives.

The FROB will provide an independent review of the investigation, root cause and corrective actions required prior to return to commercial flight.

After the conclusion of the FROB, the FROB report will be briefed to ILS customers and the launch insurance industry.

The anomaly occurred during the 4th and final burn of the Breeze M engine during a planned 9 hour and 15 minute mission. The 4th burn ended about four minutes early and the spacecraft was subsequently separated.

The spacecraft, built by Thales Alenia Space for Russian satellite operator, Gazprom Space Systems, was successfully maneuvered to its orbital position and was declared fully operational on January 8th 2013 after completing its on orbit tests.
