Liebig said the Sentinel 1A and Sentinel 2A satellites, now under development, will not be launched before 2013 and either late 2013 or early 2014, respectively.
While extending Envisat’s life another year is costly, delaying the launch of Sentinel 1A and 2A by six months will mean the launch of their identical follow-ons, Sentinel 1B and Sentinel 2B, also will be delayed by six months.The launch of the B-model satellites was always intended to occur 18 months after the A-model spacecraft were successfully in orbit. That 18-month interval will remain, meaning that the European Commission, which is sharing GMES costs with ESA, need not finance the B-units’ launch services until around 2014.Those dates are important. The executive commission of the 27-nation European Union runs on seven-year budget cycles, with the next to start in 2014. Details of that budget will not be known until 2013, and no disbursements may be made until mid-2014 at the earliest.
