Sentinel-1B will join the identical Sentinel-1A, which has been in orbit since April 2014, to form a twin-satellite constellation, orbiting 180° apart.

The Sentinel-1 mission will image the entire Earth every six days using radar, providing data that support vital services such as monitoring Arctic sea ice, surveillance of the marine environment and mapping for forest, water and soil management. More information via http://www.esa.int/sentinel1
