ENVISAT ASAR is successfully operating since March 2002 and resulting ASAR products are operationally distributed to the user community since December 2002. This paper reviews the ASAR calibration and verification activities routinely performed. It presents an updated quality status for the different ASAR products, the most recent product quality improvements introduced in the ground processor and the new single Look Complex ScanSAR product (WSS) recently available to the user community.
