The SAR Toolbox: software to help ERS SAR data users

17 November 1999

The ERS SAR Toolbox (ERS STBX) is a collection of software tools which has been developed to help the remote sensing community to use ERS SAR data. The purpose of the Toolbox is not to duplicate existing commercial packages, but to complement them with functions dedicated to the handling of ESA ERS SAR products. The Toolbox contains tools to perform functions like: data extraction, quick look generation, calibration and radiometric correction, co-registration and speckle filtering. It can be used on the many platforms (PC, Mac, Sun, etc.) and can be used to handle most ERS SAR products (PRI, SLC, SLCI, etc.) generated within the ESA ERS ground segment and at receiving stations round the world.

No data acquisition during Leonid Meteor storm

16 November 1999

To mitigate any risk from the Leonid Meteor Storm the ERS-1 and 2 payloads will be switched-off around the estimated peak of the storm from 17-Nov-99 UTC 18:00 until 18-Nov-99 UTC 15:00. This period with no data acquisition can slightly change and might be extended with better predictions shortly before the storm. The gap will be reflected in the data acquisition catalogues.

Bufr Decoder upgrade for low bit rate fast delivery products

12 November 1999

The WMO FM94 BUFR format of the ERS-2 satellite Low Bit Rate fast delivery products will change on DECEMBER 15th 1999 and will need to be mandatorily used by the WMO users as from that date. The new software will support the most recent WMO BUFR standard (WMO FM94 BUFR Edition 3) and the dissemination of the ATSR-2 ASST (UAT) product (processed by the SADIST-2 software and implemented at the Tromsoe receiving station-Norway). The NEW WMO FM94 BUFR format is NOT COMPATIBLE with the current decoder software version. Users can already access and familiarize with the new decoder.
