With reference to the general communication on the ENVISAT orbit change and particularly for ASAR, a new ASAR processor (version 5.04) will be used to generate Near-Real Time (NRT) and off-line products. The new processor will be installed progressively at all ESA processing centres and ground stations starting from 07 October 2010 on orbit number 44980.
