Abstract This data set contains a collection of shape models and their associated reference frame for the Rosetta target 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko 1 (1969 R1). These were produced by Rosetta mission teams, based on OSIRIS and NAVCAM image data obtained at the comet. This is version 2.0 of this data collection. Since the last version, the SPG_LAM_PSI SHAP5, SPG_DLR SHAP4S, and SPC_ESA MTP019 shape models have been added to this collection.
Description Data Set Overview = This dataset contains a variety of shape models for comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the target of the Rosetta mission, together with a definition of the body-centered coordinate system for the nucleus. One source of shape models is the 3-D Modeling group of the OSIRIS science team. This group has produced two different models using stereophotoclinometry techniques, each of which has strengths and weaknesses for different regions of the nucleus (these are discussed in the user_guide.asc file in the document directory). Each model is presented in its highest-resolution form, with additional versions in degraded resolution (in steps roughly a factor of 2) for ease of use when the highest resolution is not needed. Additional information about the models and their production are given in the document directory. The version number of the dataset will be incremented as additional and/or updated shape models are added. A second source for shape models is the ESA Rosetta Mission Operations Centre (RMOC), which has provided a version of the shape model from NAVCAM images, also created using stereophotoclinometry techniques. The third source for shape model development is the German Aerospace Center (DLR), which has produced a shape model using the Stereo-PhotoGrammetric (SPG) techniques using OSIRIS images. The data are all tesselated triangular plate models provided in different formats, including a basic shape model with a WRL wrapper for ease of viewing, and a digital shape kernel (DSK) for use with SPICE software (toolkit 0066 and later). The ESA/RMOC model is also provided in other formats for use in 3D printers, etc. Concerning Citation of the Data = Each individual shape model data product and reference frame document contains its own unique citation. When citing these, please use the CITATION_DESC found in the PDS label file associated with it. A list o...

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 [GLASSMEIERETAL2007A]. A detailed description of the mission analysis can be found in the ROSETTA User Manual [RO-DSS-MA-1001], and the flight Operations Plan [RO-ESC-PL-5000]. On its long way to the comet nucleus after a Launch by Ariane 5 P1+ in March 2004, the ROSETTA spacecraft orbited the Sun ...
