dc.description.abstract NASA’s planned Europa Clipper mission would carry a radar sounder which operates at HF and VHF frequencies that can penetrate the icy shell of Europa. The sounder would be used to characterize subsurface bodies of liquid water and to measure the thickness of the icy shell. The spacecraft would make observations during flyby to reduce radiation exposure. The varying geometry during the flyby is expected to cause varying radar ambiguity and surface clutter contamination. At the same time, data down-link restrictions would require on-board pulse summation to reduce data volume which would require on-board Doppler filtering to control clutter and ambiguity contamination levels. This paper will study some of the design trade-offs involved in specifying the on-board Doppler filtering. en_US
