Jason-3's third birthday

Category: News of the Jason-3 mission

On January 17th, Jason-3 celebrated the third anniversary of its launch after having orbited the Earth more than 14,000 times. But it was not just any anniversary.

After three years in orbit, Jason-3 closes its routine operations phase. But its mission has been extended for at least two more years. This "extended routine operations phase" will thus ensure the continuation of the high-precision sea-level measurement that began more than 25 years ago. 

Jason-3 will play a key role in the commissioning of its successor Jason-CS / Sentinel-6A, which is scheduled for launch in November 2020. It will allow the in flight cross-calibration of the instruments
