Since October 18, 2017, the National Observatory of Athens (NOA) and the Greek Research & Technology Network (GRNET) operate for the European Space Agency (ESA), in collaboration with Serco and GAEL Systems, the second node of the Copernicus International Data Hub. The International Access Hub provides a dedicated access to a Rolling Archive of Sentinels satellite products. Access to this hub is provided through https://inthub2.copernicus.eu and it is restricted to the international partners (NASA, USGS, GA, NOAA) having established agreements with the European Commission.
On the 15th of November 2017, ESA representatives visited the Operations Center in Athens, Greece, in an opportunity to discuss the status of the service and its evolution in the near future. Since mid-October 2017, more than 355 TiB of Sentinel data and 470,000 products have been downloaded by the users of the International Hub.
