VENUS (Vegetation and Environment monitoring on a New Micro-Satellite) is a near polar sun-synchronous orbit microsatellite being jointly built by the Israeli Space Agency and CNES. The satellite has a scientific and a technological mission. The satellite has a 2-day revisit orbit which allows constant viewing angles at constant sun lighting angles. The unique combination is hoped to allow the development of new image processing methods. A set of at least 50 points of interest around the world were chosen to be scanned throughout the scientific mission. The points will be rescanned every 2 days for the entire duration of the mission where it will collect sensory and imagery data.
