In this paper we present the Pilot Project PRIMI, designed to provide information on marine oil spills, and its validation campaign, held in august 2009, conducted with the oceanography ship Urania. During the experiment CosmoSkymed has provided an extraordinary contribution supplying almost any day images over the area inspected by the ship and in some cases also images requested with short notice.
