The table below provides the list of events affecting the MWR mission, during the ENVISAT lifetime: 1 March 2002 - 8 April 2012. 


  Generic mission or MWR instrument event
  MWR Instrument unavailability *
  Payload/Platform unavailability *
  Transition to YSM**

* Instrument/Payload/Platform unavailablities started to be referenced in 2004 (reference as EN-UNA in Description column) 

* *Does not correspond to a RA2 instrument unavailability, but the Service Module has been switched down to YSM (Yaw Steering Mode) instead of nominal SYSM (Stellar Yaw Steering Mode). This could cause degradation in the geolocation. 

Acronyms are described as labels to the text (move the cursor on the text).
