Abstract This data set contains CODMAC level 3 cometary, calibration, and instrument checkout data acquired by the Rosetta Orbiter ALICE UV Spectrometer during the first commissioning phase of the Rosetta mission, which occurred March 5, 2004 to June 6, 2004.
Description Required Reading The format of all Alice data are described in detail by the EAICD document located in the /DOCUMENT directory. In addition, the Rosetta Alice logbook file, RA_LOGBOOK_NNN.ASC, also located in the /DOCUMENT directory provides observational details such as observation target, commanded exposure time, etc., for all Alice data. The Alice team strongly recommends reading this documentation before using the data. Data Set Overview = This data set contains calibrated data acquired by the Rosetta Orbiter ALICE UV Spectrometer obtained during the first commissioning phase of the Rosetta mission, which occurred March 5, 2004 to June 6, 2004. Observations made during this phase include instrument checkouts, darks, sky background, Comet C/2002 T7 (LINEAR). A detailed listing of all Alice observations is given in the observation log file located in the DOCUMENT directory. Processing The data in this data set are calibrated, CODMAC Level 3 data. As such, corrections for detector dead time, dark counts, flatfield, and effective area have generally been applied. The primary FITS header contains a list of which corrections have been applied to that file. There are some significant discrepancies in the absolute calibration that will be corrected in a subsequent data delivery when the calibration is better understood. Data The data are in FITS format and text format. Each FITS file has a detached PDS label so that they can be read either by FITS or PDS tools. A detailed description of the data format is given in the ALICE EAICD document located in the DOCUMENT directory of this data set. Ancillary Data No ancillary data included in this data set. Coordinate System = The geometry items SC_SUN_POSITION_VECTOR, SC_TARGET_POSITION_VECTOR and SC_TARGET_VELOCITY_VECTOR provided in the label of the data product are relative to the Earth Mean Equat...

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-...
