    3:21

    A European satellite built to carry out precise measurements of sea level changes has arrived in California in preparation for launch. The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite forms part of the European Union’s Copernicus Earth Observation programme and will employ radar to map sea surface topography.

    The mission will be used to monitor the height of the sea surface to understand long-term change. It will also measure wave height and wind speed. The satellite will provide fundamental data for climate science, policy-making and protecting the 600 million people who live in vulnerable coastal areas.

    Data are provided to Copernicus services in near-real time to improve marine and weather forecasts used by maritime and coastal communities.

    The mission is a collaboration between ESA, the European Commission, EUMETSAT, NASA and NOAA, with support from the French Space Agency CNES.

    It is named Michael Freilich after NASA’s former Director of Earth Science and is scheduled for launch on 10 November on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from the Vandenberg Air Force Base.

  • SpaceX Sentinel-6A Michael Freilich Launch ???? Live

    1:52:51

    The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich (a.k.a. Sentinel-6A, Jason CS-A, Copernicus Sentinel-6A) spacecraft is developed and operated by the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), ESA, NASA and NOAA. The primary mission of Sentinel-6 is to provide ocean surface elevation data via a suite of instruments including synthetic aperture radar, and a GNSS radio occultation payload which will gather atmospheric temperature profile data as a secondary mission. Collected data will allow high precision tracking of sea level rise, and aide weather forecasting and climate modeling. Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich is the first of two Sentinel-6 satellites which will operate in the same orbit as, and eventually replace, previous Jason satellites. The primary contractor is Airbus. For more Sentinel-6 spacecraft information see the Links & Resources section below.

    This mission will launch aboard a Falcon 9 from SLC-4E, Vandenberg Air Force Base and is SpaceX's first and only California launch in 2020. SpaceX does not have any fairing catcher ships on the west coast. The booster will return to land at LZ-4. On October 3 an early-start engine anomaly caused the abort of the first GPS III SV04 launch attempt. Following investigation two Merlin engines on this booster core, B1063, have been replaced

    Support me on patreon -

    SpaceX will launch its Falcon 9 rocket from SLC-4E at Vandenberg Air Force Base, in California. The rocket will be carrying the Sentinel-6A satellite. The joint NASA/ESA satellite will collect data on sea level changes and atmospheric conditions to improve weather forecasts and climate models.

    SpaceX will launch its Falcon 9 rocket from SLC-4E at Vandenberg Air Force Base, in California. The rocket will be carrying the Sentinel-6A satellite. The joint NASA/ESA satellite will collect data on sea level changes and atmospheric conditions to improve weather forecasts and climate models.

    They are sending the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite to space to collect the most accurate data yet on global sea level and how our oceans are rising in response to climate change. This #SeeingTheSeas mission, a historic U.S.-European partnership, will launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket at 12:17 p.m. EST (9:17 a.m. PST, 5:17 p.m. UTC).

    The satellite, and its twin Sentinel-6B, is jointly developed by ESA (European Space Agency), the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), NASA, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), with funding support from the European Commission and support from France's National Centre for Space Studies (CNES). Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich is named in honor of the former director of NASA's Earth Science Division, who was instrumental in advancing space-based ocean measurements.

    The mission will be launching on SpaceX’s workhorse Falcon 9 rocket. Falcon 9 is a partially-reusable two-stage launch vehicle. Falcon 9 has launched nearly 100 times, with one failure, since it’s debut in 2010. The latest version of the Falcon 9, Block 5, has launched 41 times since 2018, and has a 100% success rate.

    The first stage is powered by nine Merlin 1D engines, each producing 845 kN (190,000 lbf) of thrust. The second stage is powered by a single vacuum-optimized Merlin 1D engine that produces 981 kN (221,000 lbf) of thrust.

    The Falcon 9 is unique among orbital rockets in that it’s partially reusable. Following stage separation, stage two will continue onto orbit while stage one prepares for landing. Stage one will do a boostback burn to bleed off enough of its velocity to return to its launch site. Following that, it will do a reentry burn to slow down enough to survive the harshest parts of reentry. The booster will use cold gas thrusters and titanium grid fins to control itself during descent. Just prior to landing, it will ignite its center E9 engine for the landing burn. The booster will deploy its landing legs for a soft landing at LZ-4, at Vandenberg Air Force Base.

    The Sentinel-6 satellite will continue the oceanographic work of the Jason-3 satellite that was launched in 2016. Sentinel-6 is designed to help scientists study climate change and improve weather forecasting. Sentinel-6 is able to measure the sea level of 90% of the world’s oceans with millimeter accuracy, which is more accurate than any other satellite. It will also collect data on atmospheric temperature and humidity. Among other instruments, the satellite includes a radar altimeter for high-precision sea-surface topography measurements and a GNSS-RO (GNSS Radio Occultation) instrument to measure atmospheric temperature, pressure and water vapor.

    The satellite’s full name, Sentinel-6A Michael Freilich, is a tribute to Michael Freich, the former director of NASA’s Earth Science division who passed away earlier this year. Sentinel-6A’s twin satellite, Sentinel-6B, is scheduled to launch in 2025. The two Sentinel satellites will continue a decades-long mission of measuring climate change started by the TOPEX/Poseidon satellite in 1992.

  • News Update on Launch of the Sea Level-Monitoring Satellite, Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich

    1:19:07

    Tune in as experts from NASA, ESA (European Space Agency), EUMETSAT (European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites, and NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) discuss the upcoming launch of Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich, a satellite that will collect the most accurate data yet on global sea levels.  The satellite is targeted for launch aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on Nov. 10 at 2:31 p.m. EST, from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
     
    Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich is a historic U.S.-European partnership that will continue the legacy of previous missions and extend our records of sea level into the fourth decade, collecting accurate measurements of sea surface height down to the centimeter for 90% of the world’s oceans.

  • Livestream Replay SpaceX - Falcon 9 - Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich Mission - November 21, 2020

    2:3:00

    A joint U.S.-European satellite built to monitor global sea levels lifted off on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Space Launch Complex 4E at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California Saturday at 9:17 a.m. PST (12:17 p.m. EST).

    About the size of a small pickup truck, Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich will extend a nearly 30-year continuous dataset on sea level collected by an ongoing collaboration of U.S. and European satellites while enhancing weather forecasts and providing detailed information on large-scale ocean currents to support ship navigation near coastlines.

    The Earth is changing, and this satellite will help deepen our understanding of how, said Karen St. Germain, director of NASA's Earth Science Division. The changing Earth processes are affecting sea level globally, but the impact on local communities varies widely. International collaboration is critical to both understanding these changes and informing coastal communities around the world.

    After arriving in orbit, the spacecraft separated from the rocket's second stage and unfolded its twin sets of solar arrays. Ground controllers successfully acquired the satellite's signal, and initial telemetry reports showed the spacecraft in good health. Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich will now undergo a series of exhaustive checks and calibrations before it starts collecting science data in a few months' time.

    Global Science Impact

    This latest mission marks the first international involvement in Copernicus, the European Union's Earth Observation Programme. Along with measuring sea levels for almost the entire globe, Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich's suite of scientific instruments will also make atmospheric measurements that can be used to complement climate models and help meteorologists make better weather forecasts.

    NASA is but one of several partners involved in Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich, but this satellite speaks to the very core of our mission, said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. Whether 800 miles above Earth with this remarkable spacecraft or travelling to Mars to look for signs of life, whether providing farmers with agricultural data or aiding first responders with our Disasters program, we are tirelessly committed not just to learning and exploring, but to having an impact where it's needed.

    The initial orbit of Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich is about 12.5 miles (20.1 kilometres) lower than its ultimate operational orbit of 830 miles (1,336 kilometres). In less than a month, the satellite will receive commands to raise its orbit, trailing Jason-3 by about 30 seconds. Mission scientists and engineers will then spend about a year cross-calibrating data collected by the two satellites to ensure the continuity of sea level measurements from one satellite to the next. Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich will then take over as the primary sea level satellite and Jason-3 will provide a supporting role until the end of its mission.

    This mission is the very essence of partnership, precision, and incredible long-term focus, said Michael Watkins, director of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, which manages the mission. Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich not only provides a critical measurement, but it is also essential for continuing this historic multi-decadal sea-level record.

    Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich and Sentinel-6B compose the Sentinel-6/Jason-CS (Continuity of Service) mission developed in partnership with ESA. ESA is developing the new Sentinel family of missions to support the operational needs of the Copernicus program, managed by the European Commission. Other partners include the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, with funding support from the European Commission and technical support from France's National Centre for Space Studies.

    The data from this satellite, which is so critical for climate monitoring and weather forecasting, will be of unprecedented accuracy, said EUMETSAT Director-General Alain Ratier. These data, which can only be obtained by measurements from space, will bring a wide range of benefits to people around the globe, from safer ocean travel to more precise prediction of hurricane paths, from a greater understanding of sea-level rise to more accurate seasonal weather forecasts, and so much more.

    JPL, a division of Caltech in Pasadena, California, is contributing three science instruments to each Sentinel-6 satellite: the Advanced Microwave Radiometer for Climate, the Global Navigation Satellite System – Radio Occultation, and the Laser Retroreflector Array. NASA is also contributing launch services, ground systems supporting the operation of the NASA science instruments, the science data processors for two of these instruments, and support for the U.S. component of the international Ocean Surface Topography Science Team.

  • Copernicus Sentinel-6 ready for launch

    3:05

    Final preparations are underway in California for the launch of Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich, a joint European and US satellite designed to take precise measurements of sea-level change. The satellite forms part of the European Union’s Copernicus Earth Observation programme and will employ a radar altimeter to map sea-surface topography. The satellite will provide fundamental data for climate science and policymaking, helping to protect the 600 million people who live in vulnerable coastal areas. It will also deliver near-realtime information for marine and weather forecasts.

    The mission is a collaboration between ESA, the European Commission, EUMETSAT, NASA and NOAA, with support from the French space agency CNES. Scheduled for launch on 21 November on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from the Vandenberg Air Force Base on the California coast, the satellite is named Michael Freilich after NASA’s former Director of Earth Science.

  • “Science is International” Says French Sea Level Rise NASA Scientist | Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich

    1:37

    For NASA scientist Severine Fournier, studying our planet knows no borders. Our changing ocean affects everyone across the globe. That’s why the new Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite, launching Nov. 10, is a truly international mission that will study our rising seas from space.

    Get to know the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite:

    The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite is part of the Sentinel-6/Jason-CS mission, a collaboration among NASA, ESA, EUMETSAT and NOAA. Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich will launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California no earlier than Nov. 10, 2020.

  • SpaceX, NASA, ESA Launch Sentinel 6 Michael Freilich Mission

    11:24

    Fresh off their second crewed launch for NASA, SpaceX temporarily shifted focus on launches to the U.S. West Coast, where a Falcon 9 rocket launched the Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich oceanography satellite in cooperation with NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the European Space Agency, and various other partners.
    Launch occurred from Space Launch Complex 4 East (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Air Force Base, California, at 09:17 Pacific Standard Time — or 17:17 UTC — on Saturday, 21 November.
    This mission was the 100th for SpaceX’s workhorse Falcon 9 launch vehicle (but only its 99th launch), and the 108th mission in general for the company since its creation in May 2002. This was also the 95th orbital launch attempt made by any launch provider so far in 2020.
    The first stage of the Falcon 9 that will launch Saturday’s mission was core B1063.1. This designation originates from SpaceX’s internal booster naming/numbering scheme, with B1063 being the 63rd Falcon booster core built by the company at their headquarters/production facility in Hawthorne, California, and the “.1” signifying the booster’s first flight.
    The Falcon 9 launched the Sentinel-6A Earth observation mission, which was named for the late NASA Earth Science division director Michael Freilich.
    The mission is also referred to as the Jason-Continuity of Service (Jason-CS) mission and was jointly developed by NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Organization for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT), and France’s Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES).
    Sentinel-6A Michael Freilich is the latest in a series of spacecraft designed to monitor changes in sea states and aims to continue high precision ocean altimetry measurements in the 2020-2030 timeframe alongside an identical spacecraft, Sentinel-6B, which is due to launch sometime in 2025.
    A secondary objective of Sentinel-6A Michael Freilich is to collect high-resolution vertical profiles of temperature using the Global Navigation Satellite System – Radio Occultation science instrument, in order to assess temperature changes in the troposphere/stratosphere and support Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models.
    The Michael Freilich spacecraft was built by Airbus Defense and Space at their Friedrichshafen facility in Germany. It’s 5.15 meters in length, 2.35 meters in height, and 2.58 meters in width. The satellite weighs approximately 1,192 kilograms (2,628 pounds) when fully fueled for launch.
    The spacecraft obtains electrical power via two 17.5-square-meter body-mounted solar arrays, which cover the top and sides of the satellite like a tent (hence its house/tent-shaped appearance). Excess energy will be stored inside a double-module lithium-ion battery, which has a total capacity of approximately 200 amp hours. Sentinel-6A’s electrical system is able to provide an average of 1 kilowatt of power while on orbit.
    Communications between the satellite and ground stations is accomplished using microwave S-band and X-band transmitters and antennae, which are located on the nadir (Earth-facing) panel of the spacecraft bus.
    The spacecraft is also outfitted with a series of thrusters for propulsion, with the fuel consisting of hydrazine monopropellant. This propulsion system is actually two independent sections, with four 8 Newton thrusters for each section.
    The Sentinel-6A satellite’s on-orbit attitude will be managed by a system consisting of sensors, actuators, and software. Subsystems include reaction wheels, magnetic torquers, magnetometers, a rate measurement unit, an Earth and Sun sensor, a star tracker, and precise orbit determination instruments.
    These subsystems will all work simultaneously to provide 3-axis stabilized Earth-pointing attitude control during all mission modes and measure spacecraft rates and orbital position.
    Sentinel-6A Michael Freilich was transported to SpaceX’s facilities at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on 24 September in order to be prepared for its launch on Falcon 9. This included final tests and checkouts, as well as fueling the satellite for launch.
    The launch was originally scheduled to occur on 10 November. However, the flight was postponed for several days as SpaceX and NASA started investigating off-nominal behavior observed during several firings of Merlin-1D engines – 9 of which power the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket.
    The behavior was first noted as an issue when the launch of the GPS III SV04 spacecraft was aborted at T-2 seconds before liftoff on 2 October due to two engines experiencing early-start behavior.
    The engines were subsequently removed from the booster and sent back to SpaceX’s dedicated testing facility in McGregor, Texas, for a series of tests — during which the issues were replicated. Following these tests, the engines were scanned, torn down, and inspected further.

    NASA and its partners on an upcoming mission to extend long-term observations of global sea level change announced the renaming of the mission, previously known as Sentinel-6A/Jason-CS, at a ceremony at 9 a.m. EST Tuesday, Jan. 28.

    The ceremony took place in the James Webb Auditorium at NASA Headquarters, 300 E. St., SW, in Washington and aired live on NASA Television and the agency’s website.

    NASA is jointly developing the mission with its partners at ESA (European Space Agency), the European Organisation for the Exploitation of Meteorological Satellites (EUMETSAT) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), with support from the Centre National d'Etudes Spatiales (CNES), France's space agency. Sentinel-6 is part of Copernicus, the European Union’s Earth observation program managed by the European Commission. The satellite is scheduled for launch in November from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

  • NSA & ESA prepare to launch Sentinel 6 satellite

    3:24

    The latest in a series of satellites that provide data on sea level changes is set to be launched this weekend. The Sentinel 6 is the largest satellite of its kind and hopes are that the data it collects will help scientists better understand how our oceans respond to climate change.

  • Sentinel-6: charting sea level

    5:32

    In a cleanroom in Ottobrunn, Germany, the latest Copernicus Sentinel satellite is ready for final testing before it is packed up and shipped to the US for liftoff next year. Designed and built to chart changing sea level, it is the first of two identical Sentinel-6 satellites that will be launched consecutively to continue the time series of sea-level measurements. This new mission builds on heritage from previous ocean topography satellites, including the French–US Topex-Poseidon and Jason missions, previous ESA missions such as the ERS satellites, Envisat and CryoSat, as well as Copernicus Sentinel-3. With millions of people around the world at risk from rising seas, it is essential to continue measuring the changing height of the sea surface so that decision-makers are equipped to take appropriate mitigating action – as is being currently highlighted at the COP-25 Climate Change Conference in Spain.
