Due to a Sentinel-3A Ground Segment anomaly on 12 December 2017, the publication of NRT products have been delayed from 05:45 to 11:30 UTC.

Due to a planned out of plane orbit manoeuvre foreseen for 13 December 2017, Sentinel-3 data from SLSTR, OLCI and SRAL will be impacted.

The Copernicus Sentinel satellites have proven to be invaluable for various activations of the International Disasters Charter.

Following the announcement on 04 December 2017, Sentinel-2B has now resumed nominal operations since 04 December 2017 at 19:00 UTC.

Sentinel-2B unavailability

04 December 2017

Due to an anomaly with the MSI instrument, Sentinel-2B data products with sensing time after 02 Dec 2017 15:16 UTC (orbit 3869) are not available.

Launched on 13 October, the Sentinel-5P satellite has delivered its first images of air pollution. Even though the satellite is still being prepared for service, these first results have been hailed as exceptional and show how this latest Copernicus satellite is set to take the task of monitoring air quality into a new era.

The first images from Sentinel-5P will be revealed tomorrow. Although it will be a few months before the satellite is ready for service, these first results are expected to show just how this new Copernicus mission is set to be a game changer for monitoring air quality.

Due to plane orbit correction manoeuvres that started on 29 November 2017 from 09:13 to 09:27 UTC, the following Sentinel-3 production problems occurred:

  • All SLSTR products from 09:08:25 UTC to 10:59:23 UTC are missing.
  • A possible degradation of data quality encountered on SRAL products during the time frame of the manoeuvre.
  • OLCI products should not be impacted as the instrument was not acquiring at the time.
Referring to the news published on 20 November, we are pleased to inform users that the recovery of missing Sentinel-2 products on 19 and 20 November was completed last night, three days in advance of the original plan for recovery.

Sentinel-1B unavailability

22 November 2017

Sentinel-1B was unavailable from 20:48 UTC on 18 November until 10:02 UTC on 19 November 2017, due to a SAR anomaly. No data were generated during this period.
