Antenna optimization studies for JUICE-RPWI

Short Description

In this project we suggest performing numerical computer simulations to study the reception properties of the electric antennas of the RPWI (Radio and Plasma Wave Investigation) instrument on board the future JUICE (Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer) mission. In the current definition phase the configuration of the 3 electric antennas are not yet fixed and need to be optimized to yield a maximum scientific return with high quality data.
