P042:
The Future of Planetary Atmospheric, Surface, and Interior Science Using Radio and Laser Links





Session ID#: 23453

Session Description:
Radio Science techniques have advanced solar system exploration for over five decades. In this session, ongoing and planned innovations that will significantly enhance the field will be presented. Session topics include planetary atmospheric, surface, and interior investigations that contribute to expanding the frontiers of solar system exploration in diverse areas such as determining the thickness of the ice sheets of ocean worlds, constraining the interior structures of the planets and small bodies, monitoring of planetary atmospheric dynamics and improvement of climate models, studying the scattering and other properties of planetary surfaces, and research in fundamental physics and solar system dynamics, among others. Technology topics include the design of small spacecraft networks and constellations, advances in flight and ground instrumentation, advancement in space clock technologies, novel communications architectures including optical links, and advances in radio and laser technologies, and new techniques and instrumentation for entry probe radio science.
