8 May 2015. As ESA’s Proba-V works quietly on its main task of monitoring vegetation growth across Earth, the minisatellite is also picking up something from a little higher: signals from thousands of aircraft. Launched two years ago today, Proba-V has picked up upwards of 25 million positions from more than 15 000 separate aircraft.
