Sentinel-2 is part of the family of EU-owned satellites, which are developed and operated in the context of Copernicus – the European Union's Earth Observation and Monitoring Programme.

Following successful completion of the Sentinel-3B Commissioning Phase, the L1B and L2 Near-Real-Time (NRT) and L1B, L1A, L1BS and L2 Non-Time-Critical (NTC) and Short-Time-Critical (STC) production of the SAR Radar Altimeter (SRAL) instrument have been published on the Open Access Hub starting from 11 December 2018.

Due to a Payload Data Ground Segment network issue which occurred at the PDGS level on 10 December 2018, the Near Real Time Copernicus Sentinel-3A products starting from sensing time 09-12-2018T23:30:00 UTC to 10-12-2018T06:30:00 UTC are delayed, while Near Real Time Copernicus Sentinel-3B products starting from sensing time 09-12-2018T23:00:00 UTC to 10-12-2018T06:45:00 UTC will be missed.

As previously announced in the news of 12 November 2018 the obsolete Sentinel-3A SRAL NTC products L1 (SR_1_SRA) and L2 (SR_2_LAN) which overlap those that have since been reprocessed, will be deleted starting from 12 December 2018.

Copernicus Sentinel-1A was unavailable from 9 December 2018 18:53 UTC to 10 December 2018 08:57 UTC, due to a SAR anomaly.

A software upgrade activity is foreseen on the Sentinel-3 Pre-Operations Data Hub today, 10 December 2018 from 13:00 to 16:30 UTC.

Following the transition of Copernicus Sentinel-3B into operations after a successful Commissioning Phase, the L1B and L2 Near-Real-Time (NRT) and L1B, L1A, L1BS and L2 Non-Time-Critical (NTC) and Short-Time-Critical (STC) production of the SAR Radar Altimeter (SRAL) instrument, will be published on the Open Access Hub starting from 11 December 2018.
We are pleased to announce that the operational Copernicus Sentinel-2 Level-2A product distribution will extend its coverage to the entire globe on 13 December 2018.
Due to a network infrastructure issue, a product publication delay has occurred on all the Copernicus Data Hub Services from 2018-12-06 01:00 UTC to 2018-12-06 12:00 UTC.
Due to some service interruptions at the Payload Data Ground Segment on 6 December 2018, Near Real Time Copernicus Sentinel-3A and Sentinel-3B products starting from sensing time 05-12-2018T23:00:00 UTC will be delayed.
