The advanced platforms developed for the Proba-1 and 2 missions refined with the demonstrated technologies, will be used to carry a multispectral Earth observing instrument to provide enhanced data continuity to the Vegetation sensor carried by France's SPOT-4 and SPOT-5 missions. The sensor itself will deploy new technology such as the very compact wide field of view telescope and new detectors.

Proba-V will show how new technologies allow small satellites to support operational systems.
