We propose a new high contrast imager for Kyoto 4m segmented telescope called SEICA (Second-generation
Exoplanet Imager with Coronagraphic Adaptive optics), aiming at detection and characterization of selfluminous
gas giants within 10AU around nearby stars. SEICA is aggressively optimized for high performance
at very small inner working angle, 10-6 detection contrast at 0".1 in 1-hour integration. We start the on-sky
commissioning test in 2016 and the science observations in 2017. Since it is the first time to realize the highcontrast
imaging on the segmented telescope, SEICA is an important step toward future high contrast
sciences on Extremely Large Telescopes (ELTs). This paper presents an overall of the SEICA program and
the conceptual design for ultimate performance under given atmospheric conditions.
