03 July 2018

Collision avoidance manoeuvres were executed on Sentinel-1B to reduce the risk of collision with an Iridium 33 fragmentation debris, potentially occurring on 29 June 2018 at 22:22 UTC.

Three data download links through EDRS could not be executed; SAR acquisitions taken few hours before this event, and planned to be downlinked through EDRS, were also affected.
