A new multi-FOV space-borne lidar named "A-lidar" is being studied by the National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA) for the earth radiation mission proposed as a joint program with the European Space Agency (ESA). The mission is named "EarthCARE". It was formerly called ATMOS-B1 or ERM. The lidar has a two-wavelength transmitter (1064 nm and 532 nm), a dual polarization receiver at 1064 nm, and a multi-field-of-view (multi-FOV) receiver at 532 nm. The multi- FOV feature of A-lidar will enable us to solve the multiple scattering problems with space lidar measurements of profiles of clouds and aerosols. The multi-FOV feature can also be used for characterization of aerosols.
