Abstract
Implementation of operational atmospheric composition monitoring missions is foreseen in the context of the Global Monitoring for Environment and Security (GMES) initiative. Sentinel-4 will address the geostationary and Sentinel-5 the low Earth orbiting part. The two missions are planned to be launched respectively on-board EUMETSAT's METEOSAT Third Generation (MTG) and Post-EPS satellites. Furthermore, a precursor for Sentinel-5 is needed to bridge between the current research missions (ENVISAT, EOS Aura) and Sentinel-5. This paper presents an overview of the GMES Sentinels-4 and -5 (precursor) missions, which have been assessed at Phase-0 level. It will describe the targetted services and key requirements, and outline the main aspects of the candidate implementation concepts now available at completion of Phase-0. It mainly focuses onto the Sentinel-5 precursor mission and the Sentinel-4 mission, highlights the resulting instrument concepts and establishes the critical technologies identified at completion of Phase-0.
