The Global Change Observation Mission (GCOM) is the next generation earth observation project of Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA). GCOM concept will take over the Advanced Earth Observing Satellite-II (ADEOS-II) and develop into long-term monitoring of global climate change. The observing system consists of two series of medium size satellites: GCOM-W (Water) and GCOM-C (Climate). The Second-generation Global Imager (SGLI) on GCOM-C is a multi-band imaging radiometer in the wavelength range of near-UV to thermal infrared. SGLI will provide high accuracy measurements of Land, Ocean, Atmosphere, and Cryosphere. This paper describes design and breadboarding activities of the SGLI instrument.
