The status of the mission was recalled: Experimental Phase is running since July 2020 with the perspective to prepare the ground for the launch and exploitation of PV-CC mission. The latest delay in the schedule of the PV-CC launch (currently Q1/Q2 2022) changed the approach for exploitation, notably owing to the degrading Proba-V illumination conditions at the time of the launch. On the processing side, the main priority is to finalize the verification phase for the C2 and start the full mission reprocessing.
The Quality Reports Advanced Search (QRAS) Portal is a system that provides a set of functionalities for searching, filtering, visualising and downloading of Earth Observation reports data, from multiple missions.
The main discussion points for the QWG meeting #12 are recalled:
1. Mission Status: the operational phase was discontinued on 30 June 2020 to limit the impact of the orbital drift and the new experimental phase started on 1st July 2020 with focus on acquiring data over Africa and Europe together with ad-hoc acquisition campaigns. Flight and Ground Segment overall performances are excellent with no sign of degradation.
ESA is pleased to announce the deployment of a new service, called ESA PDGS-DataCube, enabling multi-temporal and pixel-based access to a subset of the data available in the European Space Agency dissemination services.
