Abstract

In this white paper, we argue for a Passive Radar Io Magma Explorer (PRIME) to study Jupiter’s moon Io as one of the priority targets of the in the next decade1,2. Jupiter is the second strongest source of radio noise within our Solar System, after the Sun itself. As passive radar sounding has the potential to operate with low power consumption and robust hardware, which is crucial in an environment like Jupiter, PRIME can also address major outstanding scientific questions regarding the crustal structure of Io.
