Caption: Sentinel-1. Computer illustration showing one of the Sentinel 1 satellites scanning the Earth's surface with its advanced synthetic aperture radar (SAR) as it orbits the Earth. Sentinel-1 consists of two satellites orbiting Earth 180 degrees apart. Working together, they offer global revisit every six days. Sentinel-1A was launched in 2014 and Sentinel-1B is scheduled for 2016. The satellites carry an advanced radar instrument to image Earth's surface through cloud and rain, and regardless of whether it is day or night. As such, they will deliver timely information for numerous Copernicus Programme services, from monitoring ice in polar oceans to tracking land subsidence. This new mission is also designed specifically for fast response to aid emergencies
