Presentation type: Type Forum

Despite 3 Safe Hold Modes, the global spacecraft status is good, with excellent perspective for the future. Jason-3 is ready for intercalibration with Jason-CS/Sentinel 6.
A new DEM model, with 7 times more targets than the previous one, and usable for Sentinel 6 intercalibration, has been put to operation.
The new GDR-F standard will be available starting October 29th. The full Jason-3 mission will be reprocessed in F standard by February 2021.
