Europe’s SpaceDataHighway Relays First Sentinel-1 Images Via Laser

ESA unveiled the first Sentinel-1 satellite images sent via the European Data Relay System’s world-leading laser technology in high orbit. The two images were taken by the radar on the Copernicus Sentinel-1A over La Reunion Island and its coastal area. The first was scanned in a high-resolution mode, the second in a wide-swath mode that
