Paper Abstract

Following the launch of the SPOT4 satellite, and preliminary in-flight tests, the operational phase of the VEGETATION system is under way. The mission, system and orbital payload are described. Emphasis is put on the excellent image quality, which fulfills all users' requirements and design goals: in-flight measured image performances are presented and compared to on-ground predictions. VGT-P, VGT-S1 and VGT-S10 image products delivery is presently starting and full operation of the system is scheduled by the end of 1998.
