Notes

  1. The DASS S-band constellation is not planned to be declared as operational, but its data may be used operationally.
  2. Not equipped with a SAR repeater, but used for the return link service.
  3. See https://www.gsc-europa.eu/system-status/Constellation-Information for more information on the satellite navigation messages.
  4. Only the E1 navigation signal with dummy navigation message. Satellite orbit data are provided by GSC ground server.
