Asteroids Inside Out: Radar Tomography

Interior structures of small bodies are crucial for constraining formation mechanisms and for planning NEA mitigation tactics. Long-wavelength radar tomography can deliver 3D characterizations of small body interior structure and composition. We outline science, mission opportunities, and technology needs for radar tomography in the next decade.
