The project activities are split into several steps:
- During Phase 1, user requirements have been collected and consolidated to set up relevant products and system specifications. Simulated test datasets representative of Sentinel-2 imagery were acquired over 12 test sites to benchmark algorithms and design the system;
- Phase 2, was devoted to the development of an open source processing system and the generation of prototype products based on the Phase 1 outcomes;
- Starting right after the Sentinel-2 commissioning phase, Phase 3 was demonstrating and validating the developed system with actual Sentinel-2 time series, with the additional objective to transfer the system to the Champion Users at operational level.
