SENTINEL-1 Production Scenario
The SENTINEL-1 ground segment operations implement a baseline pre-defined mission production scenario.
This scenario foresees the systematic processing and online dissemination of all SENTINEL-1 data acquired in IW, EW and SM modes into Level-0 and Level-1 GRD products.
This is complemented by the systematic processing and online dissemination of:
The geographical areas where Sentinel-1A Level-1 SLC products are systematically generated have gradually evolved since the opening of the online data access on 3 October 2014 and have been gradually increased further in the following months aiming at making SLC products available for all data acquired in IW mode.
The evolution of the areas where Sentinel-1A Level-1 SLC products have been systematically generated and made available for online data download since the opening of the data access is summarised in a series of time-tagged maps (download the SLC maps evolution).
Each map is associated to the date from which IW data acquired over the new areas listed in the map have been systematically processed and made available as Level-1 SLC products. Whenever an area was added to the systematic SLC processing scenario, it remained part of this scenario for the future.
A summary of the Sentinel-1 systematic IW production and online data access is provided hereafter:
In addition, all Sentinel-1A data acquired before 28 July 2015 and not originally processed to SLC (i.e. data acquired outside the pre-defined SLC regional areas) has been backwards processed during 2016 and made available for online data access. As a result, Level-1 SLC products are available for all Sentinel-1 data acquired in IW mode.
The geographical areas where Sentinel-1 IW and EW data is systematically processed to Level-2 OCN products and made available for online data access have also evolved over time. This evolution is summarised in a series of time-tagged maps (download IW/EW OCN maps evolution).
100% of the IW and SM data acquired over land masses worldwide are systematically produced to level 1 SLC products and made available.
