  • From 16 March, 09:30 UTC to 16 March, 16:07 (absolute orbits from 5613 to 5617): No SL_1_RBT products were generated.
  • From 16 March, 16:07 UTC to 17 March, 22:26 UTC (absolute orbits from 5617 to 5635): SL_1_RBT products were generated but only visible bands were available, i.e. the first three bands.
