    Comments: The Proba satellites are part of ESA’s In-orbit Technology Demonstration Programme, missions dedicated to the demonstration of innovative technologies. Proba-2 is a 0.6×0.6×0.8 meter, box-shaped structure with two deployable solar panels and a nominal weight of 130 kilograms. The primary mechanical structure consists of three aluminium honeycomb panels arranged in an H configuration and a bottom panel that acts as the interface to the launch vehicle. Almost all the satellite system units are mounted on these inner panels. A total of 17 new technological developments and four scientific experiments are being flown on Proba-2, with ten European countries and Canada were involved in its construction.
