COSMO Second Generation (CSG) system has been conceived, according to the requirements stated by ASI and I-MoD, at the twofold need of ensuring operational continuity to the currently operating “first generation” COSMO-SkyMed (CSK) spacecraft constellation, while achieving a generational step ahead in terms of functionality and per-formance. CSG System is characterized by enhanced end-to-end performance and products image quality. This is achieved by improving the Standard Acquisition Modes and by adding new Standard and Non-Standard Acquisition Modes, here described. Improvements on the Planning flexibility of the System have been implemented to meet the needs of dif-ferent Users.
