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.
