Proba-1 CHRIS Level 1A Full Archive
Jan-2001



Intended as a one-year mission, Proba-1 was launched on the 22nd of October 2001 and since 2004 has been managed by ESA’s Ground Segment Department within the Directorate of Earth Observation at ESA/ESRIN. While it remains an ESA mission, Proba-1 is funded as a TPM and its data are distributed using the mechanism of the TPM scheme. Proba-1 carries a Compact High-Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (CHRIS) – the only currently operational European spectrometer with contiguous bands and multi-angle acquisition capability ESA offers access to worldwide Proba-1 CHRIS data (both archived and new acquisitions) via the TPM scheme.

While it remains an ESA mission, Proba-1 is funded as a TPM and its data are distributed using the mechanism of the TPM scheme. Proba-1 carries High- Resolution Camera (HRC), which has a primary function of education and public outreach imagery. ESA offers access to worldwide Proba-1 HRC data (both archived and new acquisitions) via the TPM scheme. Read more
