During 2016, two Finnish friends, Joni Norppa and Lauri Häme founded the company Satellio Ltd and received funding from the Finnish government for a project to monitor forestry by utilising satellite images. Over the last few years, they became experts in handling satellite data very efficiently.

Following successful completion of the Copernicus Sentinel-3B Commissioning Phase, the Level 2 (OL_2_LFR and OL_2_LRR) both Near-Real-Time (NRT) and Non-Time-Critical (NTC) production of the Ocean and Land Colour Instrument (OLCI) instrument is being published on the Open Access Hub starting from 24 January 2019.
From 29 January 2019, Copernicus Sentinel-3A SRAL Near Real Time (NRT) products will be generated at the SRAL Land Production Centre and not at Svalbard Ground Station.
An amendment to the current Copernicus Agreement has been signed by the EU and ESA, adding €96 million to ESA's space component budget for the world's largest environmental monitoring programme: Copernicus.

Starting from Tuesday 22 January 2019, the Copernicus Sentinel-3A SLSTR Near Real Time products will be generated at the SLSTR Land Production Centre and will no longer be generated at the Svalbard Ground Station.

Collision avoidance manoeuvres are planned to be executed on Copernicus Sentinel-1B to reduce the risk of collision with debris, potentially occurring on 19 January 2019 at 11:42 UTC.

A maintenance activity on the core infrastructure hosting the data hub services, involving the replacement of switches interconnecting the servers to the rolling archive storage, is planned on 22 January from 09:00 to 16:00 UTC.
Starting from Tuesday the 15 January 2019, the Copernicus Sentinel-3A OLCI Near Real Products will be generated at the OLCI Land Production Centre and no more at Svalbard Ground Station.

Launched in late November 2018 by the Geological Survey of Norway (NGU), the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) and the Norwegian Space Centre (NSC), InSAR Norway is a service that aims to monitor and measure ground movements on a national scale, using Copernicus Sentinel-1 data.

Due to a Payload Data Ground Segment anomaly on 28 December 2018, Copernicus Sentinel-3A NRT/NTC/STC products for Orbit 14913 (sensing start time 28-12-2018T12:45, sensing stop time 28-12-2018T14:25) are missing.
