ENVISAT Commissioning Status

05 August 2002

The ENVISAT spacecraft with all instruments performs well with stable performances.The start of the data delivery to the Cal/Val PIs has been delayed by an instability of various elements of the ground segment, which in turn require extensive manual procedures and lead to a lower throughput than expected in the end-to-end chain of processing, data distribution and handling of requests in general. These difficulties are currently being dealt with and the data delivery to Validation PIs will start by mid August 2002.
