A new version of the Sentinel High Level Operations Plan (HLOP) document has been released.
A significant update of ApiHub is planned in order to publish the Sentinel-1A data acquired before 16 November 2015 that has previously only been available on the SciHub. This update will see a complete realignment of the two access points and will provide an improved redundancy for the open access Sentinel data.
Due to an issue in the data processing chain, Sentinel-2A users are here informed that products generated between 20 January (orbit 8242 acquired on 19/01) and 26 January (orbit 8340) are affected by missing metadata and incorrect footprint.

ESA's Fluorescence Explorer (FLEX) mission will orbit in tandem with one of the Copernicus constellation satellites. Taking advantage of Sentinel-3's optical and thermal sensors will lead to an integrated package of measurements to assess plant health. With the Sentinel-2 satellites also in orbit, there is a unique opportunity of using this data synergistically from all three missions for vegetation studies.

Due to a mission planning anomaly, no Sentinel-2 MSI data has been acquired between Friday 20 January 2017, 09:07 UTC (part of acquisition on orbit 8255) and Monday 23 January, 12:00 UTC (orbit 8299 included).
On Friday, 20 January 2017, the Scientific Data Hub will not be available from 9:30 to 13:00 CET for a maintenance activity.

ESA is pleased to announce the first official release of Sentinel-3A SLSTR Level 1 Non Time Critical (NTC) data products in the Sentinel Data Hub. Please note that the Sentinel-3A SLSTR Level 1 Near Real Time (NRT) data were already released on 17 November 2016.

Today we are interviewing ESA's Dr Nuno Miranda, who is responsible for the quality of the data from the Sentinel-1 mission.

A series of earthquakes occurred in Central Italy on 18 January 2017. A Sentinel-1A acquisition covering the area is planned for today at approximately 17:00 UTC.

Related SLC products will be generated shortly after acquisition and made available on the various data hubs.

Due to a Sentinel-2 MMFU unavailability on 14 January 2017, data were lost between 13:58 and 17:02 UTC, impacting orbits 8172 to 8174.
