With integration of four additional Envisat ASAR Level 1 collections, ESA is now providing access to the complete Envisat and ERS (A)SAR imagery data archive.
New versions of the SMOS processors for level 1 and 2 were deployed in the operational ground segment on 25 May 2021.
In the Third Party Missions Programme framework, archive collections from GeoEye-1, QuickBird-2 and WorldView (1 to 4) have been opened to users.
A large amount of additional ERS-1/2 SAR data is now available to users via the dedicated ESA (A)SAR dissemination service.
COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation (CSG) is now part of ESA's Third Party Missions Programme, in which ESA has an agreement with ASI to distribute data products from the mission.
In January 2021, ESA and GAF AG extended their agreement under ESA’s Third Party Missions programme regarding the provision of IRS data and DSMs until the end of 2021.
