The objectives the WindVal III campaign were derived from results, experience and lessons learnt of the last airborne campaigns in 2009, 2015 and 2016,
The objectives for the WindVal II campaign in 2016 were derived from the results, experience and lessons learnt from these last airborne campaigns in 2009 and 2015.
The main scientific objectives of EPATAN 2016 (Earthcare PrepAraTion cAmpaigN) were derived from the scientific objectives of EarthCARE.

The BACCHUS-DOC Radar and Optical Campaign was an area mapping project of
vineyards near Frascati (Italy). ESA required high resolution geo-referenced airborne SAR data of different wavelength and polarisation (preferably polarimetric).
CLARE 2000: Cloud Lidar and Radar Experiments were to provide an extended data base and develop new analysis methods.
