Design study and algorithm development efforts are overviewed with cloud profiling radar (CPR) for EarthCARE mission. EarthCARE is a candidate for the ESA Earth Explore Core Missions and presently Phase A study is ongoing. EarthCARE is jointly proposed by European and Japanese scientists, and CPR is being studied by CRL and NASDA, Japan. The EarthCARE CPR is characterized by very high sensitivity 94 GHz radar with nadir pointing and Doppler measurement capability. CPR is designed to maximize synergy performance in combination with other onboard active and passive sensors. In this report, after summarizing CPR objectives and expected performance in responding to requirements, study topics concerning Doppler capability and variable PRF techniques are discussed. The EarthCARE synergy algorithm development efforts through airborne campaign experiment are also introduced.
