Near-Real-Time Data

Polar TEP works in collaboration with EOPORT to provide access to Sentinel 1 data in near-real-time (NRT) – within minutes of acquisition compared to the approximately three hours in our normal processing chain.

More information about EOPORT is available here, and more information about the available Sentinel 1 data and associated costs is available here.

Use of the NRT data in Polar TEP requires the following:

The cost of adding NRT data to a Polar TEP account is €100 per month on top of the Polar TEP account fees and EOPORT data fees.

The steps to work with NRT data on Polar TEP are as follows:

  1. Request a Polar TEP NRT data account using the form below.
  2. When your account is approved, you will be provided with a call-back URL to be entered during the EOPORT data ordering process.
  3. Use the EOPORT website to order data by specifying the area of interest and time frame for acquisitions.  The call-back URL will allow data to be automatically directed to your private storage on Polar TEP as it is acquired by the satellite.
  4. Once your ordered data is available, it can be viewed in the Polar TEP viewer and accessed in your ML or IDE environments for processing.
