The Radio Neutrino Observatory in Greenland (RNO-G) is under construction at the Summit Station in Greenland to search for ultra-high-energy neutrinos. Each of the 35 stations to be deployed will have a surface component and a deep component (100 meters below the surface of the ice) that together enable the detection and detailed reconstruction of neutrino events. Building on ARA and ARIANNA experiences, the initial RNO-G stations will combine the strengths of all previous approaches. RNO-G will extend multimessenger neutrino astronomy to energies above 10 PeV. The RNO-G collaboration will develop the techniques required to rapidly produce and respond to alerts of astrophysical transients. Studies with RNO-G will also enable further development of simulations of radio arrays to be designed for the size envisioned for IceCube-Gen2.
