The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) is planning a satellite system for the Advanced Land Observing Satellite (ALOS) "Daichi" follow-on program. ALOS-3 will succeed the ALOS missions with enhanced capabilities. ALOS-3 will carry optical sensors and be capable of collecting images with high-resolution (0.8 m) and wide-swath (50 km). ALOS-3 will also acquire stereoscopic imageries by two telescopes. These are ideally capable for collecting the large-scale geographical information that is used in many practical applications, including disaster management support. JAXA has been conducting the conceptual design for the ALOS-3 and its mission instruments. This paper introduces outline of the spacecraft and the instruments.
