Update on Swarm Field-Aligned Current Dual (FAC_AC) data missing from 7 November 2021

16 Dec 2021

As a follow-up of the news published on 23 November 2021, we want to update Swarm users about the missing Field-Aligned Current Dual (FAC_TMS_2F) data since 7 November 2021. 

After in-depth investigations, it has been confirmed that the production is currently blocked due to the not favourable orbital configuration of Alpha and Charlie.

Therefore the data gap will not be recovered.

FAC_AC production will resume as soon as the relative orbits of Alpha and Charlie are back in a favourable configuration.
