Abstract This dataset contains EDITED RAW DATA of the RPCIES instrument taken during the asteroid Lutetia encounter (AST2). Included are the data taken between 10 Jul 2010 and 13 Jul 2010.
Description Data Set Overview = The following describes the nature of instrument operation during the various periods for which IES data are available in this submission. In all cases the data are raw electron and ion counts as function of energy, azimuth (direction in the instrument symmetry plane) and ^ation (angle above or below the symmetry plane). This data set includes data obtained by IES during the period 10 May 2010 to 10 September 2010 (referred to as the AST2 flyby period by ESA for reference although instrument operation was not continuous during this period). The period between 10 to 13 July 2010 encompassed the asteroid Lutetia flyby. The actual flyby of the asteroid occurred on 9 July 2010 when IES was not operating. Thus only solar wind data were obtained. During the period between 0300 UTC on 11 July 2010 to 1100 UTC on 12 July 2010 no IES data were obtained. Processing All Rosetta Plasma Consortium (RPC) data packets are transmitted together during downlinks with Rosetta. RPC data are retrieved from the Data Distribution System (DDS) at European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) to a central RPC data server at Imperial College London. Data for IES is copied from the RPC central data server by IESGS at Southwest Research Institute. The pipeline processing software is the IES Ground System (IESGS). IESGS extracts IES CCSDS packets from the RPC collective data files stored on the RPC central data server at Imperial College. These packets are used to build ion and electron data products. The data products are grouped by date and written out to PDS compliant archive data files. One data file is created for each day. IESGS also generates the labels for the archive data files. IES science products, archive and label files, and limited spectrograms are available to team scientists on the IESGS website. Coordinate System = In order to determine IES pointing, attitude data for the ...

The spacecraft carries a Rosetta Lander, named Philae, to the nucleus and deploys it onto its surface. A brief description of the mission and its objectives can be found in the Rosetta Science Management Plan [RO-EST-PL-0001] and in papers [GLASSMEIERETAL2007A]. A detailed description of the mission analysis can be found in the Consolidated Report on Mission Analysis [RO-ESC-RP-5500], the ROSETTA User Manual [RO-DSS-MA-1001], and the flight Operations Plan [RO-ESC-PL-50...
