The Submillimeter Wave Instrument (SWI) on the JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE)

The Submillimeter Wave Instrument (SWI) is part of the payload of ESA’s L1 mission JUICE (JUpiter ICy moons Explorer). It sounds the atmospheres of Jupiter and the four Galilean satellites in two far infrared bands covering the frequency ranges of 530 – 625 GHz and 1065 – 1275 GHz. Furthermore, it is designed to characterize the thermo-physical surface properties of Callisto, Ganymede and Europa during flybys and orbital phases. After the JUICE launch on 14 April 2023, the Near Earth Commissioning Phase (NECP) was successfully completed. In this presentation, the instrument science, its science performance and the results from the SWI NECP including science observations of Earth from large distance will be reported.
