Caption: Sentinel 4 mission in orbit, computer artwork. Sentinel 4 is a future space mission from the ESA (European Space Agency) dedicated to monitoring the composition of the atmosphere for GMES (Global Monitoring for Environment and Security programme) Atmosphere Services. It will consist of an Ultraviolet Visible Near-infrared (UVN) spectrometer and data from Eumetsat's thermal InfraRed Sounder (IRS), both onboard the MTG-Sounder (MTG-S) satellite. After the MTG-S satellite is in orbit, the Sentinel-4 mission also includes data from Eumetsat's Flexible Combined Imager (FCI) onboard the MTG-Imager (MTG-I) satellite. The first MTG-S satellite is expected to launch in 2019 and the first MTG-I in 2017.
