Copernicus Sentinel-1A collision avoidance manoeuvres on 18 March 2019

18 March 2019

Collision avoidance manoeuvres were executed on Copernicus Sentinel-1A on 18 March, to reduce the risk of collision with a debris, which was potentially due to occur at 05:31 UTC.

Four Sentinel-1A data download links through the European Data Relay Satellite System (EDRS), taking place between 02:28 and 09:08 UTC, had to be cancelled due to these orbit manoeuvres. SAR acquisitions taking place slightly before and during this period may have been affected.
