The Juno Spacecraft
Juno is a spin-stabilized spacecraft, powered by 3 large, deployable rigid-panel arrays that can be moved to adjust the spin axis relative to the high gain antennae boresight. The spacecraft utilizes high energy density Li ion batteries for battery-regulated bus voltage. Basic radiation protection for sensitive electronics is afforded by a titanium-walled vault. Telecom is achieved with X-band uplink and downlink. Ka-band telecom is included for improved Doppler measurement performance
Juno Basic Mission Goals
Origins -Determine the abundance of water and place an upper limit on the mass of Jupiter's solid core.
Interior - Understand Jupiter's interior structure and how material moves deep within the planet by mapping its gravitational and magnetic fields.
Atmosphere - Map variations in atmospheric composition, temperature, cloud opacity and dynamics to depths greater than 100 bars at all latitudes.
Magnetosphere - Characterize and explore the three-dimensional structure of Jupiter's polar magnetosphere and auroras.

Cruise and Earth Flyby Data and
PDS4 data for UVS, JIRAM and Gravity are available through perijove 53. PDS4 data for MWR are available through perijove 44.
Data were not acquired during Jupiter Orbit Insertion on July 5, 2016 (perijove 0). Only gravity data was obtained on perijove 2.
Each of the following archived data sets contains documentation of the data and individual data collections of raw, reduced and/or derived data complete with calibration information where applicable.
(MWR) data are stored in ASCII tables with supporting documentation
(UVS) data are stored in FITS tables with supporting documentation
