CryoSat Orbit under Investigation

13 Sep 2023

A difference has been noticed between CryoSat predicted and actual orbits which is larger than expected.

This affects, among other things, the CryoSat acquisition mask; in particular the accuracy of the transitions between SIRAL acquisition modes from a few to ~150 km along the satellite track.

The issue is currently being looked into and CryoSat users will be kept updated accordingly.
