ASAR GM Master Dataset generation

ASAR (Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar) is a C-band SAR instrument on the Envisat satellite and is a continuation of the ERS-1/2 SAR instrument for image mode and ERS-1/2 AMS for wind.

ASAR operates in five main modes:
• Image Mode (IM)
• Alternating Polarisation mode (AP)
• Wide Swath mode (WS)
• Global Monitoring mode (GM)
• Wave mode (WV)

Data for each of the five modes will be managed through different X-PReSS projects.
There will be one project for WV and four closely linked projects for IM, AP, WS, and GM.
The image projects are closely related to the similar project for ERS-1/2 SAR.

This specific project handles the Master Dataset generation for the Global Monitoring (GM) mode.
The project covers the following activities:

• Consolidation of all GM Level 0 data (2002 - 2012)

• Converting GM Level 0 data into EO-SIP packages (2002 - 2012)

No L1 products will be generated as part of this project

The project is executed by the following partners within the X-PReSS consortium: Serco SpA, S&T, Sistema, and MEEO


Revised schedule

Topic: clockSince the GM L0 data was not in the D-PAC dataset but had to be retrieved from Kiruna, this resulted in some delays in retrieving of the data and shipping to the X-PReSS project. Shipment of the first data started in November.
A tentative date of retrieving the final data is set to mid December, but this date is still uncertain.
