ALOS-3 Overview

About Advanced Optical Satellite (ALOS-3)

The Advanced Optical Satellite (ALOS-3) is a successor of the optical mission of ALOS, "DAICHI". ALOS-3 will achieve improved ground resolution (0.8 m) while observing a wide-swath (70 km) by a larger sensor with higher performance compared to DAICHI, and continuously observe not only Japan but also global land areas.

Observation data acquired by ALOS-3 is expected to be useful in various fields such as disaster prevention & preparation activities, maintenance & updates of precise geospatial information, and research & applications on coastal & land environmental monitoring.
