Warning on CryoSat L2/L2i products: Attitude and Star Tracker ID parameters missing

07 September 2015

CryoSat users are informed that the spacecraft attitude parameters are incorrectly listed reporting zero values in all the Baseline C L2i products (roll: field #16, pitch: field #17, yaw: field #18; Star Tracker ID: Field#14) and SAR L2/GDR products (roll: field #6, pitch: field #7, yaw: field #8), starting with validity 01 April 2015.

The Attitude parameters in the L2 LRM/SARin and L1b products are correct. The origin of the software problem has been identified and a patch is being prepared in order to fix the issue as soon as possible. The products already distributed will be replaced with a corrected version in due course.
