Deadline for proposal submission : 16 February 23h00 UTC (Midnight Central European Time).

Venµs

Venµs unique features will be to acquire high resolution (5 and 10m), super-spectral (12 bands) images every other day with constant view angles over about 100 sites of interest located around the world. Venµs strives at demonstrating the relevance of the combination of such high temporal observation capabilities, high spectral resolution, and high spatial resolution for science and applied researches. It also attempts to prepare the specifications of the next generation of missions dedicated to land surface monitoring.

Venµs is planned to be launched during 2016. The scientific mission is designed to last two and a half years (30 months) in order to observe two vegetation cycles in both hemispheres.
