Following the launch of Sentinel-2B in March 2017, the Copernicus Sentinel-2 constellation has been finally completed and deployed. Calibration and validation activities are carried out operationally by ESA's Mission Performance Centre (MPC).
These activities can be complemented with the expertise from independent teams such as the experts involved in relevant Cal/Val international groups, or by individual principal investigators, users, laboratories, and institutions.
These experts are invited to be part of the so-called Sentinel-2 Validation Team (S2VT). The work performed by the S2VT will complement on a best-effort and with no supply of funds basis, the baseline validation activities.
The objective of the S2VT is to collect independent validation evidence and experimental data to support the Sentinel-2 Mission. The S2VT aims at providing valuable feedback on the mission core products through the experience gained by S2VT members while exploiting Sentinel-2 data. Such recommendations will be taken into consideration by ESA.
