Paper Abstract

In the Mission Demonstration Satellite Lidar (MDS-lidar) Project, the National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA) has started development of a satellite-borne lidar system for experiments in space, which is called Experimental Lidar-In-Space Equipment (ELISE). Its main purposes are to demonstrate technical feasibility of a space-borne lidar and its key components, and also to get scientific data on clouds/aerosols distribution for better understanding of the earth climate system. Presentation will be made on the ELISE development plan, scientific goals and their implementation plan.
