Alaska Satellite Facility provides salellite data service for SNAP mission?

I have noticed that Product Library of SNAP can connect to Alaska Satellite Facility and download SAR data from ALOS,Sentinel-1 and SNAP missions. It is interesting there is a SNAP satellite in orbit? I have never heard about this mission, can anyone give detailed information about this satellite and sensor(s)?Thanks.

There is no mission specifically linked to the SNAP toolbox. Could be a misunderstanding regarding how ASF announced it. Can you please provide a link?

The link to SMAP is: Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) Mission – ASF (
