Instruments

All three moons would be studied with the same complement of instruments and make uniform measurements. Special attention would be paid to identifying high-potential future landing sites.

NASA would choose the final suite of instruments through a competitive process open to proposals from scientists worldwide. Two highly probable instruments are:

-a radar instrument for mapping the thickness of surface ice
-a laser instrument for mapping surface elevations.

Others instruments likely to be included are:

-a camera
-an infrared imager
-a magnetometer
-instruments to study charged particles, atoms and dust that the spacecraft encounters near each moon
