The Mission Performance Working Group is a body composed of experts from EUMETSAT, NASA, ESA, NOAA and CNES. The group meets on a regular basis, and it is aiming at monitoring the Sentinel-6MF overall altimetry mission performance. The group assesses on mission and payload performance budgets, data products quality, algorithm development, new processor verification and validation performance, calibration and validation planning, as well as provides scientific support to the reprocessing calibration and validation, key mission instrument meetings and mission performance meetings. The MPWG activities are equivalent to those done by the MSEs as per previous Jason mission.

In this presentation, the MPWG will share with the OSTST the latest calibration and validation findings including any mission scientific challenges. Moreover, this presentation will address the scientific plans for Sentinel-6MF evolutions, and provide an estimated timeline for these evolutions to be available to the Sentinel-6MF user community.
