Upcoming evolution on 23 March 2022 of the Sentinel-1 operational processor and Level-2 product format

15 March 2022

An evolution of the Sentinel-1 processing baseline will be introduced on 23 March for all newly generated products. This evolution features two main items:

  • A minor evolution of the Sentinel-1 Level-2 OCN product format, in line with the product format version 3.11. The subject product format specifications are available here together with a set of corresponding sample products.

  • Further to our news of 3 September 2021 the correction of Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) will be applied to IW and EW products.

This evolution will be activated with the deployment of the new instrument processor version 3.5.1.

Products generated after the deployment of this version will tag version 3.5.1 of the operational processor in the corresponding product metadata and will be aligned with the new product format specifications 3.11.
