In 2030 the LPP will be in the moon .... yes but the icy moons of Jupiter !

The JUICE mission will continue and extend the study of Jupiter that began with a series of known space missions : Pioneer (NASA), Voyager (NASA), Cassini-Huygens (NASA - ESA) & Galileo (NASA). The aim is to answer the question of the emergence of habitable worlds on the gas giant moons (Ganymede, Europa and Callisto) & also provide a new brick to the understanding of the formation of the solar system. JUICE spacecraft launch is scheduled for June 2022 and the journey to Jupiter is foreseen to last more than seven and a half years. LPP will contribute to the "Radio and Plasma Wave Investigation" instrument (RPWI) whose PI is J.E. Wahlund from SISP-IRFU (Sweden), together with LESIA and LPCEE for the French participation. RPWI is made of magnetic antennas, electrical antennas and a diagnostic of the electron density will focus on interactions with atypical plasma Jovian magnetosphere system. Efficient and innovative (the magnetic field noise of the instrument will be less than 4fT/sqrt (Hz) and its associated electronics will be integrated into an ASIC), the search coil magnetometer is the result of an international collaboration (LPP, L2E, DT-INSU, University of Kanazawa (Japan)).
