New Swarm E (CASSIOPE) precise orbits and attitude data released

17 March 2020

We would like to inform Swarm data users that precise orbits and attitude quaternions for the year 2019 for the CASSIOPE/e-POP satellite are now available on the Swarm dissemination server in the following folders:

  • /#CASSIOPE_e-POP/Precise_Orbit_Data
  • /#CASSIOPE_e-POP/Precise_Attitude_Data

The precise orbits are provided in SP3 file format, whereas the format of the attitude quaternions is explained in a "readme" file located in the same folder as the attitude quaternions files. Both file formats indicate whether data is directly derived from measurements or interpolated.

For further information, we refer to Montenbruck et al. (2019) and Technical Report ESA-EOPSM-SWRM-TN-3487.
