The Dragon Programme is a joint undertaking between ESA and the Ministry of Science and Technology of China designed to encourage increased exploitation of ESA and Chinese Earth Observation satellite data within China.
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). The new dataset (DOR_VOR_AX vF) is now available to users in Envisat format from the ESA dissemination service.
This note shortly summarizes the validation activities for the new rapid orbit and altimeter products RPD/ROPR for ERS-2. Besides internal quality measures the products are compared with the operational Preliminary Orbit (PRL) and the Quick-Look Ocean Product Records (QLOPR).
This volume is the first of a 15 volume set of documents that comprises the Payload to Ground Segment Interface Control Document (PGICD).
