Two downtimes of the Sentinel-1 Scientific Data Hub are foreseen during Week 14 of 2015. The first downtime will occur on Monday 30 March from 09:00-13:00 CET to perform infrastructure maintenance. The second downtime will occur on Wednesday 1 April from 08:00-16:00 CET for an upgrade of the data hub software configuration.

Scientists are making advances in the use of satellite radar data - such as those from the Sentinel-1 mission - to monitor Earth's changing surface.

ESA and the UK Space Agency have signed an arrangement that establishes access to data from the Sentinel satellites, marking a significant step in their exploitation.
