The extended planned maintenance of the Data Hub infrastructure on 5 and 6 March 2018 has been closed, and all services have been resumed as of 09:00 CET today.
Sentinel-1 Level-1 and Level-2 products generated from 13th March 2018 will be processed with the new IPF version 2.90 and made available following the new product format, as announced on 12 June 2017  and on 13 October 2017.

The scheduled maintenance of 05 March 2018 has been extended to 06 March 2018.

The maintenance is taking place to upgrade of the storage infrastructure in view of the upcoming Sentinl-5p production, Sentinel-2 L2 global production and Sentinel-3B.

Bridging from the initial Level-2A pilot production started in May 2017, we are pleased to confirm the long-term maintenance of the Level-2A as an operational product starting from mid-March this year, as well as its forthcoming evolution with systematic worldwide coverage planned for deployment by the summer.

Infrastructure maintenance activities are scheduled on Monday 05 March from 07:30 UTC to 19:00 UTC.

Due to two separate Ground Segment anomalies on 24 and 25 February 2018, NRT/NTC/STC Level-1 and Level-2 user data could be degraded or missing.

Due to a SLSTR decontamination and on-board software maintenance activity, SLSTR mission data will be unavailable during the following periods:

  • SLSTR VIS: from 2018-02-15 09:20:00 UTC to 2018-02-19 12:42:00 UTC. Absolute orbits impacted from 10404 (relative orbit 36 of cycle 28) to 10463 (relative orbit 95 of cycle 28)
  • SLSTR IR: from 2018-02-15 09:20:00 UTC to 2018-02-21 21:40:00 UTC. Absolute orbits impacted from 10404 (relative orbit 36 of cycle 28) to 10497 (relative orbit 129 of cycle 28).

The Sentinel-1 satellites of Europe's Copernicus Programme are being used to quantify the surface deformation of the disaster area around the Hualien earthquake.

Referring to the news published on 06 February, users are informed that the ground segment contingency has been solved through specific interventions at the network level and nominal Sentinel-2 product availability has resumed.
The Copernicus Research and User Support (RUS) team announces an upcoming webinar on Ocean Colour Monitoring with Sentinel-3.
