JUICE RIME antenna characterisation test

A scaled model of the RIME antenna – Radar for Icy Moons Exploration (Principal Investigator: Prof. Lorenzo Bruzzone) together with a simplified model of the JUICE spacecraft is under test at ESTEC ETS Test Centre facility. Several tests were performed, for different solar array orientations, with the objective of collecting data to be compared with simulation results for design and verification approach validation.
