Happy Birthday PROBA-V!


Published on 9 May 2017

On May 7, PROBA-V celebrated its fourth year in orbit. The team is proud to announce that their PROBA-V adventure continues, as the mission has been extended until at least end October 2019!

PROBA-V was conceived to routinely monitor the land surface and vegetation state globally, continuing the 15+ year legacy of SPOT-VEGETATION, while preparing for the Sentinel-3 series of Copernicus (with Sentinel-3A launched in Feb 2016). At the same time, it offers increased spatial resolutions, with global 100 m and 300 m data.

To celebrate this 4th anniversary, VITO launches its brand new PROBA-V website. Make sure to take a look and discover the new time-lapse videos!
