Ground Segment Overall Validation (GSOV)

11 January 2001

As part of the GSOV, the FOS to PDS Mission planning interface is being extensively tested in parallel with the PDS integration and the FOS simulation campaign. Delivery of PDS V3 will be followed by the rehearsal of the PDS operations to support the commissioning and routine phases, with various data acquisition configurations.

Payload Data Segment (PDS)

10 January 2001

The PDS version 3, supporting the latest satellite configuration, the latest Envisat Reference Operation Plan and the latest GS hardware and software, is within its integration and validation phase. The PDS V3 is scheduled to be delivered by the Prime in April 2001.

Flight Operations Segment (FOS)

05 January 2001

The FOS system is almost operational, and has been used to support the Satellite test at Estec (SVT2).The FOS team is completing the Flight Operations Procedures and preparing the simulation campaign, rehearsing the operations during the Launch, Leop, commissioning and routine phases.

Flight Operations Segment- SVT2

10 November 2000

The development and integration of the Flight Operations Segment (FOS) is proceeding according to plan. Preparations for the SVT2 complementary tests, scheduled for November 2000, are ongoing.

Disman a database on DISASTER Management

04 October 2000

Aimed at helping the identification of organisations playing a key role in the different phases of disaster management in 18 countries, the DISMAN database created under the aegis of the European Space Agency is available now. Technical note: in case access to the database is denied to you, please refer to the DISMAN technical news

ERS/ENVISAT symposium now imminent

02 October 2000

The fourth Scientific Symposium - jointly hosted by ESA and Chalmers University of Technology meant to cover both the ERS and ENVISAT missions and announced on these pages at earlier stages is now imminent. The Gothenburg event, Sweden, will be held from 16 to 20 October 2000. The symposium is an illustration of the ESA support to the development of Earth Observation along three main three lines: Science & Methodology, Development of Applications / Public Services and Development of the commercial market for Earth Observation-based Services.

DESCW catalogue: Interferometry Baseline daily

02 August 2000

Baseline information (precise satellite positioning) for all ERS-2 orbits since 26001(10 April 2000) up to the ones acquired the day before the extraction of the file can now be obtained daily (day_base.exe in DESCW Update page). N.B. The weekly inventory information (data.exe in DESCW update page) contains the same information, but updated at a lower frequency.

ESA Earth Observation Quarterly no: 66

31 July 2000

The Envisat Calibration and Validation Approach:
'Following internationally agreed definitions, instrument and data calibration involves pre-launch and post-launch measurements to fully characterise the payload instruments, and subsequent activities to configure the ground processors to provide calibrated data products (radiance, reflectance, transmittance, polarisation, radar backscattering coefficient, radar echo time delay).'
