ESA's GOCE satellite has reached its ambitious goal of mapping Earth's gravity with unprecedented precision. In two short years, the sophisticated satellite has collected the measurements needed to record the 'geoid' reference shape of our planet.
During the second Automated Transfer Vehicle mission ATV-2 (from 16 February to 5 June 2011), both Envisat and ATV-2 are making use of the communication services provided by the Artemis Data Relay Satellite. Some descoping of Envisat activities may occur in case of high priority or emergency ATV-2 activities.
New versions of the ENVISAT Altimetry Level 1b and Level 2 Near Real Time (NRT) processing chains generating the FDGDR products (NRT IPF version 6.04) have been installed and in operation from 09:00 UTC on 7 March 2011 (orbit 47148) onwards.
