The report is a response to the ESA (European Space Agency) instrumental contribution call for the EJSM (Europa Jupiter System Mission), in 2010. The EJSM EMSS (ElectroMagnetic Sensor Study) team has performed a comparative analysis of electric and magnetic sensors for the study of the Jovian magnetosphere system and assessed their relevance to the Ganymede environment in order to optimize the science return of the Radio and Plasma Waves Instrument (RPWI) investigation. This report shall be
more » ... as a guideline to select the best electric and magnetic sensor set in the frame of the EJSM/JGO (Jupiter Ganymede Orbiter) project. This report addresses critical points about radio receiver design and observation planning (sensitivity, dynamic, advanced capabilities, onboard processing and triggering...). This study also includes three reports of broad interest for the EJSM mission design: an assessment of the EMC (ElectroMagnetic Cleanliness)requirements for the JGO spacecraft (section 5.3); a study of the Jovian radio emissions for radar instrumentation (section 5.4); a report onsynergistic RPW science aspects at Jupiter (section 5.5).
