OSTM/Jason-2 has successfully completed its transfer to the interleaved orbit.

We are happy to report that OSTM/Jason-2 has successfully completed its transfer to the interleaved orbit. Thanks to the operational teams efforts, all the planned activities have been executed during the transit and we are very happy to report that the satellite behavior was excellent during this period. In particular, the propulsion system was fully operational that is very good for our future plans on OSTM/Jason-2. 

We are now on the targeted ground track and the POSEIDON3 altimeter is back to operation since October 14th, 20:00:00 UTC. Data production has also resumed and the first OGDRs on the interleaved orbit are available to Users. The first one is :

IGDR production will resume today and after a quick validation step, the products will be distributed to Users on 2016/10/17.

I suppose that you will join me in thanking all the operational teams who have made this success possible.
