JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE) is an ESA mission to Jupiter and its Galilean moons Ganymede, Callisto and Europa. Its scientific goals are to investigate Jupiter and its Galilean satellites as planetary bodies and potential habitats for life. The Submillimeter Wave Instrument (SWI) on JUICE is a passive radiometer/spectrometer tunable between 530-625GHz. It will study the atmospheric compositions and dynamics, as well as the dielectric and thermal properties of the icy surfaces. The IAP is part of the SWI instrument development and science team. This follow-up proposal concerns the development and characterization of the SWI optics, calibration system and receivers, as well a science study for the planned surface observations.
