From November 2021 on and for at least one year, the French-Israeli VENµS Earth observation satellite launched in 2017 will enter a new phasis. It will then acquire everyday images with a resolution of 4m in 12 spectral bands for the scientific community.
The call for proposals aims to select the sites that will be observed. The deadline for proposals is 15 February 2021.
The call is open to researchers from educational institutions, research institutes, government institutions, non-profit organizations, and to any type of organization, including private and commercial companies, provided they conform to the CC BY-NC 4.0 license of the data (no commercial use).
Although VENμS mission was primarily designed for vegetation studies, the results of the first phase show that VENμS is also useful for a range of topics, such as water quality, glacier movements, coastal erosion monitoring, and the atmosphere. Therefore, the proposals will not be restricted to any research topic.
