A Sentinel-3A ground segment anomaly on 10 February 2018 has now been solved.

Due to a Sentinel-3A ground segment anomaly on 10 February 2018, SRAL NRT and STC L1/L2 products could be affected.
Due to an activity to decontaminate the SLSTR instrument aboard Sentinel-3A and on-board software maintenance, SLSTR data will be partially unavailable from 15 to 20 February.

The Sentinel-3B satellite scheduled for launch this spring, will be flying 30 seconds apart from its twin, Sentinel-3A, during the commissioning phase. This temporary tandem arrangement is to obtain better cross-calibration between instruments, thus reducing uncertainties in the multi-satellite time series and ensuring an overall high data quality.

In response to scientific user recommendations and in agreement with the European Commission, a new GNSS L1B RINEX user product has been officially released for the Sentinel-1, -2 and -3A satellites from the Copernicus Data Hub service.

Users are informed that the availability of Sentinel-2 products in the data hubs is delayed as of 05 February 2018.

Due to a Sentinel-3A ground segment anomaly on 05 February 2018, now resolved, NRT products from orbit #10259 to #10261 have been delayed; nominal production was fully restored starting from orbit 10262.

Due to a Sentinel-3A ground segment anomaly on 05 February 2018, NRT products from orbit #10258 could be delayed. Investigation of the issue is ongoing.

After being put through its paces to make sure it is fit for life in orbit around Earth, the Copernicus Sentinel-3B satellite is ready to be packed up and shipped to Russia for liftoff.
A set of service infrastructure upgrades are scheduled for the Data Hubs from 07:00 UTC on 5 February to 18:30 UTC on 6 February 2018.
