Earth Observation information discovery platform

The second step of a project to update the interface for submitting data access requests will take place on 28 October, updating data collections available via the “fast registration with approval” mechanism.
A new version of the Envisat Precise Orbit products has been generated by the Centre de Traitement Doris Poseidon (CTDP) using the Geophysical Data Records F standards (GDR-F).
Through the Online Dissemination server, ESA offers registered users access to the ALOS-1 AVNIR-2 (Advanced Visible and Near Infrared Radiometer type 2) L1C data acquired by ESA stations in the ADEN zone, plus some worldwide data requested by European scientists.
A new version of the SMOS level 1 Near Real Time processor - version 724 - was deployed in the operational ground segment on 2 August 2021.
A new version of the SMOS level 2 Near Real Time processor - version 300 - was deployed in the operational ground segment on 2 August 2021.
A new version of the SMOS Sea Surface Wind Speed processor - version 300 - was deployed at IFREMER and ESA operational ground segments on 4 August 2021.

    Earth Observation data to improve navigation risk modelling and shipping routes

    With the increased frequency of shipping activities, such as tourism and transport of freights, navigation safety has become a major concern. Even if new technologies have already supplied aids to pilots for navigation risk reduction, the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) reports that the majority of accidents could have been avoided by providing suitable input to the navigation decision-making process — this is where Earth Observation data can represent complementary information, to improve traffic monitoring and guidance along safe routes.
