This paper presents the Radar for Icy Moon Exploration (RIME) that is a fundamental payload in the Jupiter Icy Moon Explorer (JUICE) mission of the European Space Agency (ESA). RIME is a radar sounder aimed to study the subsurface of Jupiter's icy moons Ganymede, Europa and Callisto. The paper illustrates the main goals of RIME, its architecture and parameters and some recent advances in its design.
