Minimize Mission Operations Overview

Launched in February 1992, the SAR instrument operated nominally until August 1997, when the JERS-1 spacecraft lost the ability to record data, therefore limiting its coverage to areas within the JERS-1 ground station masks. On the 11th of October 1998, a malfunction occurred (believed to be an attitude control system failure) causing a termination of satellite operations.
