Sentinel-1A
Sentinel-1A

Satellites in the European Commission's Sentinel/Copernicus Earth observing program.

Status: Operational 2014. First Launch: 2014-04-03. Last Launch: 2014-04-03. Number: 1 .

Sentinel-1A's C-band SAR was 13.3 x 0.8m in size. The satellite was only a quarter the mass of its predecessor Envisat which carried a wider array of instruments; in the Sentinel program there will be a series of smaller, more specialized satellites. At 05:14 GMT on April 5, Sentinel made a maneuver to avoid a very close pass by NASA's defunct ACRIMSAT satellite, which failed on December 14 2013 after suffering battery issues.
