ScatSat-1 winds unavailable


Since yesterday we experience problems in the ScatSat-1 wind processing. The input signal levels appear to be too low and we obtain unrealistic low wind speeds. In the wind products, the appropriate data monitoring flag is set so ingestion systems which evaluate this flag will automatically reject the products.

As a precaution the distribution of the OSI SAF ScatSat-1 winds (OSI-112-a, OSI-112-b) was stopped. We will let you know once we have more information about the root cause of the problem.
