Sentinel-3A

Eurockot successfully launched the Sentinel-3A satellite on February 16, 2016 at 20:57 hrs local time (17:57 hrs UTC, 18:57 hrs CET) from Plesetsk Cosmodrome in Northern Russia on a Rockot / Breeze-KM launcher. This launch was Eurockot's first in support of the European Copernicus satellite system.

Sentinel-3A was injected very precisely into its target orbit with very low tip-off rate.
