The previous version of reply document for the Request For Information (RFI) on “the purpose, strategy, and roadmap of each committee” released by ISAS was submitted on Feb. 2015. The document has been revised following the change in circumstances surrounding our community regarding solar and extra-solar system exploration. The revision has been conducted by the working team consisting of 40 members of the Japanese Society for Planetary Science. The new version of the reply document of the RFI was published on the web site of the Japanese Society for Planetary Sciences after the request for public comments from the members of Japanese Society for Planetary Sciences.
The reply document contains the status of domestic and international planetary exploration programs, brief explanation on on-going and near-future missions, a list of instruments under development in Japan, and the roadmap of planetary explorations proposed by Japanese Society for Planetary Sciences.
In this presentation we will present our roadmap of planetary explorations in coming 20 years.
