EXtreme ultraviolet spectrosCope for ExosphEric Dynamics (EXCEED) is an earth-orbiting space Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) telescope mission that will be launched in 2012 and injected into the orbit around the earth. EXCEED will make observations of plasma space in various planets in our solar system. It is very important to put on an observing site beyond the atmospheric absorption when we observe EUV spectral range, and which enables us to study Io plasma torus of Jupiter, and interaction of the solar wind with the upper atmosphere of the planets and their escape. In this paper, we will introduce the mission overview, its instrument, and the scientific targets.
