Paper Abstract

The Global Change Observation Mission (GCOM) is the next generation earth observation project of Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). GCOM concept will take over the Advanced Earth Observing Satellite-II (ADEOS-II) and develop into long-term monitoring of global climate change. The observing system consists of two series of medium size satellites: GCOM-W (Water) and GCOM-C (Climate). The Second-generation Global Imager (SGLI) on GCOM-C is a multi-band imaging radiometer in the wavelength range of near-UV to thermal infrared. SGLI will provide high accuracy measurements of Land, Ocean, Atmosphere, and Cryosphere. This paper describes design and breadboarding activities of the SGLI instrument.
