Aquarius was a NASA instrument aboard the Argentine SAC-D spacecraft. Its mission was to measure global sea surface salinity to better predict future climate conditions. Aquarius was shipped to Argentina on June 1, 2009 to be mounted in the INVAP built SAC-D satellite. It came back to Vandenberg Air Force Base on March 31, 2011. The observatory was successfully launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base on June 10, 2011. After its launch aboard a Delta II from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, SAC-D was carried into a 657 km (408 mi) sun-synchronous orbit to begin its 3-year mission.

dbo:abstract
  • Aquarius is een instrument van de Amerikaanse ruimtevaartorganisatie NASA om het zoutgehalte van het wereldwijde zeeoppervlak te meten om zo beter klimaatomstandigheden te kunnen voorspellen. Het omvat onder andere drie radiometers die gevoelig zijn voor zoutgehaltes (1,413 GHz; L-band) en een scatterometer die de gegevens corrigeert op basis van de ruwheid van het oceaanoppervlak. Aquarius is aan boord is van de Argentijnse satelliet SAC-D. De kunstmaan werd op 10 juni 2011 gelanceerd vanaf de Amerikaanse luchtmachtbasis Vandenberg. (nl)
  • Aquarius was a NASA instrument aboard the Argentine SAC-D spacecraft. Its mission was to measure global sea surface salinity to better predict future climate conditions. Aquarius was shipped to Argentina on June 1, 2009 to be mounted in the INVAP built SAC-D satellite. It came back to Vandenberg Air Force Base on March 31, 2011. For the joint mission, Argentina provided the SAC-D spacecraft and additional science instruments, while NASA provided the Aquarius salinity sensor and the rocket launch platform. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)'s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, managed the Aquarius Mission development for NASA's Earth Science Enterprise based in Washington, D.C., and NASA's Goddard Spaceflight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, is managing the mission after launch. The observatory was successfully launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base on June 10, 2011. After its launch aboard a Delta II from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, SAC-D was carried into a 657 km (408 mi) sun-synchronous orbit to begin its 3-year mission. On June 7, 2015, the SAC-D satellite carrying Aquarius suffered a power supply failure, ending the mission. (en)
  • Aquarius é a designação de um instrumento à bordo do satélite argentino SAC-D. A sua finalidade, é medir a salinidade da superfície dos oceanos visando uma melhor previsão de condições climáticas futuras. O satélite SAC-D foi lançado com sucesso a partir da Base da Força Aérea de Vandenberg em 10 de Junho de 2011. Os instrumentos científicos incluem um conjunto de três radiômetros sensíveis à salinidade e um scaterômetro para correções devido as variações da superfície do mar. O satélite SAC-D é operado pela Comisión Nacional de Actividades Espaciales (CONAE) da Argentina. Depois do seu lançamento, por intermédio de um foguete Delta II, o satélite SAC-D foi colocado numa órbita heliossíncrona de 657 km para iniciar a sua missão de três anos. (pt)
