Full Name PROBA-V Status Operational (extended)
Mission Agencies ESA, BELSPO Launch Date 07 May 2013
Mission Links mission site | data access portal EOL Date Dec 2020
EO Portal Info NORAD Catalog # 39159 (TLE)
International Designator 2013-021A
Orbit Type Sun-synchronous Orbit Period
Orbit Sense Descending Orbit Inclination 98.73 deg
Orbit Altitude 820 km Orbit Longitude
Orbit LST 10:30 to 11:30 Repeat Cycle 2 days
Objectives and Applications The PROBA-V mission’s main multispectral imager extends the 15-year dataset of Spot-4 & Spot-5’s Vegetation instrument, delivering global coverage every two days for uses including climate impact assessments, surface water resource management, agricultural monitoring, and food security estimates. From July 2020, owing to its orbital drift, Proba-V is no longer considered as a mission fulfilling an operational role, and will instead be dedicated to experimental activities with a reduced data acquisition scheme.

Global Land's first global 100 m land cover map for 2015 – released just over one year ago – continued to inspire thousands of users with applications in agriculture, biodiversity & nature conservation and natural capital accounting.Ov Today, Global Land's land cover team is happy to release annual updates to the 100m global land cover maps, covering the 2015-2019 period, including the same 23-class classification, versatile cover fractions for 10 classes, forest type layer and quality indicators on input data density and the confidence in the detected changes.
