SENTINEL 2B is a European environmental and Earth observation spacecraft, the fifth Copernicus satellite to launch since deployments began in 2014. The Sentinel 2 satellites provide the Copernicus program's optical component, specializing in mapping land surfaces, monitoring crops and forests, and detecting pollution in lakes, streams and coastal waters. Sentinel 2A and 2B are roughly analogous to the U.S. government's Landsat satellite series, but with the ability to image the entire planet at faster tempos, a characteristic known as revisit time. SENTINEL 2B's orbit is positioned 180 degrees away from Sentinel 2A, and the satellites together will see every point on the planet at least once every five days. The revisit time will be cut to around three days at Europe's latitude, and as short as one day in parts of Scandinavia and Canada
