Partial failure
Telemetry from the launch vehicle was lost after 9 minutes 30 seconds into the flight, after rocket trajectory went off course due to invalid inertial units' azimuth value.[14] Satellites later found to have separated from the upper stage and entered an incorrect orbit with large inclination deviations.[15][16] However, they were able to reach the planned orbit with small loss of on board propellant for SES-14 and still expected to meet the designed life time,[17] but with significant loss on Al Yah 3 (up to 50% of its intended operational life).[18][19]
