CNES has decided to launch the SPOT4 experiment (Take 5) proposed by CESBIO.

This experiment consists in changing the altitude of SPOT 4 satellite to put it on a 5-day phased orbit, from February 1st to May 31st, 2013.

From this orbit SPOT 4 will see 42 sites every 5 days, always from the same angle, in order to provide image time series simulating those of Sentinel-2.

The data of Take5 experiment will be processed and distributed by PTSC.
