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 UTC, sensing stop time 28-12-2018T14:25 UTC) are missing.

Collision avoidance manoeuvres were executed on Copernicus Sentinel-5P on 11 December 2018 due to an identified collision risk. Data are not available for orbits 3165 to 3170.

ESA is pleased to announce the official release of the Copernicus Sentinel-5P Sulphur Dioxide (SO2) and Formaldehyde (HCHO) Offline products on the Copernicus Sentinel-5P Pre-operations Data Hub. The products are available from orbit 5932, 5 December 2018.

With reference to the news published on 07 December, we are pleased to inform users of the successful dissemination of the Copernicus Sentinel-2 Level-2A products worldwide on the data hubs as of 13 December, starting from Sentinel-2B sensing orbit 9243 and Sentinel-2A sensing orbit 18152.

Following successful completion of the Copernicus Sentinel-3B Commissioning Phase, the Level 1 (OL_1_EFR and OL_1_ERR) both Near-Real-Time (NRT) and Non-Time-Critical (NTC) production of the Ocean and Land Colour Instrument (OLCI) instrument will be published on the Open Access Hub starting from 17 December 2018.

Sentinel-2 is part of the family of EU-owned satellites, which are developed and operated in the context of Copernicus – the European Union's Earth Observation and Monitoring Programme.

Following successful completion of the Sentinel-3B Commissioning Phase, the L1B and L2 Near-Real-Time (NRT) and L1B, L1A, L1BS and L2 Non-Time-Critical (NTC) and Short-Time-Critical (STC) production of the SAR Radar Altimeter (SRAL) instrument have been published on the Open Access Hub starting from 11 December 2018.

Due to a Payload Data Ground Segment network issue which occurred at the PDGS level on 10 December 2018, the Near Real Time Copernicus Sentinel-3A products starting from sensing time 09-12-2018T23:30:00 UTC to 10-12-2018T06:30:00 UTC are delayed, while Near Real Time Copernicus Sentinel-3B products starting from sensing time 09-12-2018T23:00:00 UTC to 10-12-2018T06:45:00 UTC will be missed.

As previously announced in the news of 12 November 2018 the obsolete Sentinel-3A SRAL NTC products L1 (SR_1_SRA) and L2 (SR_2_LAN) which overlap those that have since been reprocessed, will be deleted starting from 12 December 2018.

Copernicus Sentinel-1A was unavailable from 9 December 2018 18:53 UTC to 10 December 2018 08:57 UTC, due to a SAR anomaly.
