  • Outlook

The Copernicus Sentinel-5 Precursor mission

As the first Copernicus mission dedicated to monitoring our atmosphere, Copernicus Sentinel-5P is the result of close collaboration between ESA, the European Commission, the Netherlands Space Officeindustrydata users and scientists

The mission consists of one satellite carrying the TROPOspheric Monitoring Instrument (TROPOMI) instrument. The TROPOMI instrument was co-funded by ESA and The Netherlands.  

The satellite was successfully launched on 13 October 2017 from the Plesetsk cosmodrome in Russia.
