Paper Abstract

The Advanced Land Observing Satellite-2 (ALOS-2) is a follow-on mission from ALOS "Daichi". The state-of-the-art L-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) aboard ALOS-2 will, in response to society's needs, have enhanced performance compared to ALOS/PALSAR. ALOS-2 will have a spotlight mode (1 and 3 m) and a high-resolution mode (3 to 10 m), while PALSAR has 10m resolution. The Preliminary Design was completed in March, 2010. Phase C/D has been started and the Engineering Models are currently under development. This paper describes the current development status of ALOS-2.
