Sentinel-1 first images

Launched on 3 April, ESA’s Sentinel-1A satellite has delivered its first radar images of Earth on 12 April 2014.

They offer a tantalising glimpse of the kind of operational imagery that this new mission will provide for Europe’s ambitious Copernicus environmental monitoring programme.

Rather aptly, the first image shows Brussels in Belgium, just one day after the satellite was put into its operational attitude, and demonstrates the potential of Sentinel-1A’s radar vision.

Images to discover on ESA website.
