03 August 2018

The GOSAT "FTS_SPOD_X" and "FTS_SPON_X"  products are currently unavailable due to a satellite inclination control manoeuvre and lunar eclipse operation.

"FTS_SPOD_X" and "FTS_SPON_X" are products of target observations and will not be available during the entire control period, 13 July to 17 August 2018.

The restart schedule of sun-glint and target observations will depend on whether any manoeuvres are performed on 17 August.
