Copernicus CAL/VAL Solution

Project description

Solution for Copernicus Sentinel missions

Copernicus Sentinels are a new family of missions including a range of technologies, such as radar and multi-spectral imaging instruments for land, ocean and atmospheric monitoring, providing robust data for Copernicus Services. Although Sentinel calibration and validation (Cal/Val) activities are instrumental to each mission, they face some limitations. To overcome these, 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 responsibility, cost and schedule aspects, CCVS will also design a roadmap for implementation of the Cal/Val solution.
