OSI SAF RapidScat Winds products discontinued

NASA announced the end of the RapidScat mission on the International Space Station after almost two years of successful operations.

Wednesday, 30 November 2016

On 19 August, a power distribution unit for the space station's Columbus module failed, resulting in a power loss to RapidScat.

Despite several attempts, it has not been possible to reactivate the instrument.

The near-real time RapidScat wind products (50 km - 2 hours latency, 50 km - 3 Hours Latency, 25 km - 2 hours latency, 25 km - 3 Hours Latency) from the OSI SAF have been unavailable since then and are now officially discontinued.
