Copernicus Sentinel-1A was unavailable on 16 November 2021 between 05:11 UTC and 11:42 UTC, due to a Payload Data Handling and Transmission (PDHT) sub-system anomaly.

Due to Copernicus Sentinel-3B OLCI Instrument on-board calibration on 11th November 2021, OLCI Level-1 and Level-2 production unavailability is expected for sensing time from 11/11/2021T09:06:03 to 11/11/2021T09:07:13

As follow up of the anomaly announced in the news published on 5 November 2021, Users are informed that Sentinel-1B products publication is gradually recovering to its nominal conditions and the backlog will be absorbed in the following hours.

As a consequence of a ground segment anomaly, the Sentinel-1 systematic production is significantly impacted since 04 November in the morning, leading to over half of the production unavailable.

Due to Copernicus Sentinel-3A on board manoeuvre occurred on 4 November 2021, SLSTR Level-1/ Level- 2 products degradation is expected for sensing time from 04/11/2021T07:05:45 to 04/11/2021T07:15:35

A routine decontamination activity of the Sentinel-2A MSI is planned to take place over a continuous period of 24-hours between 08 November 2021 10:30 and 09 November 2021 10:30 UTC.

Due to Copernicus Sentinel-3B OLCI instrument on-board anomaly on 2021-10-27, then solved, OLCI production starting from approximately 2021.10.27 02:00:03 (UTC) to 2021.10.27 13:47 (UTC) sensing time is degraded; Synergy production is also affected in the same sensing time window.

Following the announcement of 3 September regarding the forthcoming deployment of the Copernicus Sentinel-1 Level-1/2 processor version 3.4, featuring an evolution of the Sentinel-1 Level-1 and Level-2 product format to version 3.9, we are pleased to announce a final rescheduling of the deployment on 3 November.

Due to an ongoing on-board anomaly with the Copernicus Sentinel-3B OLCI instrument, production of OLCI data starting from approximately 02:00:03 sensing time on 27 October 2021 is degraded. The anomaly will also affect Synergy production in the same sensing time window.

Following the announcement of 7 October, please note that the deployment of Processing Baseline 04.00 is postponed to early January 2022.
