An earth-orbiting Extreme Ultraviolet spectroscopic mission, EXtreme ultraviolet spectrosCope for ExosphEric Dynamics explore (EXCEED) that will be launched in 2012 is now under development. The EXCEED mission will carry out observations of Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) emissions from tenuous plasmas around the planets. It is essential for planetary EUV spectroscopy to avoid the Earth’s atmospheric absorption, therefore it should be mandatory to observe above the Earth’s atmosphere. In this paper, we will introduce the general mission overview, the instrument, and the scientific targets.
