Paper Abstract

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has the plan of the Global Change Observation Mission (GCOM) for monitoring global environmental change. Second generation Global Imager (SGLI) is a mission instrument to be installed on the satellite of GCOM Mission Climate (GCOM-C) satellite. SGLI is the optical radiometer observed to the frequent Global, Ocean, Land, Cloud and Ice sphere to help determine the Earth's climate change. SGLI is a suite of two radiometers called VNR and IRS. The VNR is employing a wide swath (1150km) push-bloom scan with line CCD detector. IRS is employing a conventional cross-track mirror scan system (1400km swath) with cooled infrared detector. We report the SGLI preliminary design and special feature. The current SGLI is BBM development phase which is underway to confirm the feasibility of the design.
