A New Frontiers Class Mission for the Uranian System that Focuses on Moon, Magnetosphere, and Ring Science

The Uranian system is home to the best example of a native ice giant satellite system, a magnetosphere with a unique geometry and interaction with the solar wind, and a set of curiously chaotic, narrow, and dark rings. We recommend adding a Uranus system mission to the New Frontiers list is needed to provide options for this understudied system.
