Copernicus’ Sentinel satellites are part of a new family of missions that encompasses a range of technologies, such as radar and multispectral imaging instruments for land, ocean, and atmospheric monitoring, that provide reliable data for Copernicus services.
Although Sentinel calibration and validation (Cal/Val) activities are instrumental for each mission, they must meet certain limitations.
To overcome them, the EU-funded CCVS project will define a comprehensive solution for all Copernicus Sentinel missions.
The project will propose an updated specification of Cal/Val requirements, as well as an overview of existing Cal/Val sources and means and a gap analysis identifying missing elements and required developments.
Focusing on accountability, cost, and schedule aspects, the CCVS will also design a roadmap for implementing the Cal/Val solution.
