The key objective of the CAMELOT study was to contribute to the definition of the air quality and climate protocol monitoring parts of GMES Sentinels 4 and 5 missions, in particular regarding the Sentinel 4 and 5 Level 1B requirements and the mission scenarios.

The CAMELOT consortium, led by KNMI, consisted of the following institutes and universities:
  • Belgian Institute for Space Aeronomy (BIRA-IASB)
  • Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI)
  • Institute of Applied Physics "Nello Carrara" (IFAC-CNR)
  • Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute (KNMI)
  • Laboratory for Atmospheric Optics (LOA, a joint laboratory of University of Lille - 1 & CNRS)
  • Laboratory of Molecular Physics for the Atmosphere and Astronophysics (LPMAA, a joint laboratory of University Pierre et Marie Curie & CNRS)
  • Noveltis
  • Rhenish Institute for Environmental Research at the University of Cologne (RIU)
  • Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL)
  • Netherlands Institute for Space Research (SRON)
  • Free University of Brussels (ULB)
