Bruno Greco(1)

The GMES Space Component comprises dedicated missions (called the Sentinels) and contributing missions to enable specific routine services in support of European policies. In this framework, Sentinel-2 is a dedicated GMES multi-spectral mission enabling global land monitoring services in support of different environmental and security policies at global, continental and local scale. Sentinel-2 products will be made available together with products of similar missions to the GMES data users in a routine fashion and with a long-term perspective.
