GOSAT data dissemination schedule until 6 May 2020

24 Apr 2020

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection, the JAXA Tsukuba Space Center workers were requested to work remotely. Until 6 May 2020 the GOSAT product generation and distribution will follow this schedule:



  • The FTS L1B NRT (_X) data was not generated and disseminated by JAXA. Production has since resumed and the product backlog will be recovered in the next few weeks


  • Only FTS-2 NRT data (generated with predicted orbit file, in theory available five hours after sensing) will be still produced and disseminated by JAXA

The observations of the GOSAT and GOSAT-2 satellites are not affected by the restriction and they will continue: as soon as the JAXA regular operations are resumed, the policy is to sequentially recover and distribute the past data that could not be provided.
