For 30 years, ASF has provided consistent, high-quality access to Earth observation data acquired from space and from air. From a single antenna taking its first satellite downlink in 1991, ASF has grown into a multi-antenna NASA satellite ground support facility and a NASA Distributed Active Archive Center with over 13PB of Earth observation data available to download.
