The Ozone Dynamics Ultraviolet Spectrometer (ODUS) is a satellite-borne, nadir-looking ultraviolet spectrometer for measuring total ozone amount. It will be launched in 2005 onboard Japanese earth observation satellite GCOM-A1 (GCOM: Global Change Observation Mission) satellite, which was formerly called Advanced Earth Observation Satellite-3A, ADEOS-3A. The ODUS instrument measures continuous spectrum from 306 to 420 nm with 0.5 nm spectral resolution and 20 km spatial resolution, using an Ebert-type specyrograph and a one-dimensional silicon array detector, which will improve the accuracy of the retrieved total ozone amount. This paper presents an overview of the GCOM-A1 and ODUS instrument, the summary of the evaluation results of the laboratory models.
