ALOS new ground segment - Ordering suspended from end of April 2016

25 April 2016

ESA has developed a new ground segment to offer ALOS users the possibility to have online access to the ALOS full mission data.

The new ground segment will be deployed gradually, and will be slightly different according to the sensor.

AVNIR and PRISM data will be available for online immediate download, starting from the 4th quarter 2016.
PALSAR data will gradually be available from 3rd quarter 2016 for online download after a fast on-the-fly processing.

ESA will suspend the ALOS on-request ordering as of 30 April 2016, waiting for the availability of the new ground segment.

Before 30 April 2016, ESA will evaluate the ALOS data requests, in particular the larger ones, in order to ensure the delivery of ALOS orders with the old ground segment, prior to its dismissal.
