A new hybrid particle and radio detector is currently under development to upgrade the IceTop array of the IceCube experiment facing IceCube-Gen2. Instrumenting the IceTop surface array with radio detectors in combination with conventional particle detectors improves the accuracy of the measurement of Extensive Air Showers (EAS) induced by cosmic rays. Especially the radio technique enables the measurement of highly inclined EAS throughout all the year. This gives rise to the search for PeV gamma rays coming from the galactic center which is visible from the IceCube site all over the year at an inclination of 61°. In addition, we can study in which way a radio array can improve the ability to veto inclined air showers for the purpose of neutrino detection in the ice. The deployment of the first two prototype antennas extending a station of scintillation detectors at IceTop has been scheduled for January 2019. These antennas serve as a test setup for a future deployment of 74 radio antennas inside the IceTop footprint. During this presentation, the proposed IceTop radio array as well as the first deployed prototype antennas will be introduced in detail and first measurement results will be shown.
