Qc.sentinel1.eo.esa.int is down


For the past 24 hours, we’ve been unable to access the Sentinel1 POD service at:


I’m able to download data via ODATA so I don’t think it’s a network issue. Can anyone else verify that this is what they’re seeing?

Best Regards,


Can confirm, site is not accessible. So it’s no issue at your side. But I can’t tell what’s wrong.

Thanks for confirming, Andreas. Do you know if there is a mirror or repo somewhere that we could use alternatively? I’ve searched Vertex at ASF and PEPS at CNES and both don’t seem to have the orbit or auxiliary files.

Resource https://qc.sentinel1.eo.esa.int/ does not work again!!!
Where can I download files of orbits?

We had a failure of the server and currently they are working on other solution to make the orbit files available again. Sorry for the inconvenience.

SNAP “apply orbits” operator uses however orbit files from our STEP server so for all data older than mid April 2018 should work.

Thank you. I wish to quickly solve the problem.


new server has been opened this morning

We are now working on the integration of the latest orbits into the server which is used by “apply orbits” operator

Thank you. This is very good news!!! :slight_smile:
