This collection provides access to the SAOCOM products acquired in the ASI Zone of Exclusivity, that correspond mainly to the European territory plus the international waters in front of North Africa and the Middle East, archived and catalogued in the ASI/CONAE dissemination system.
At the moment, the capability of tasking for new acquisitions and ordering the generation of products is not yet available in the SAOCOM catalogue but is provided with a simple excel-based file interface and a dedicated email account (details will be soon described on the ASI SAOCOM web page ).
The ASI SAOCOM portal currently provides only a subset of all available products but the offer is bound to grow shortly.
