Abstract This dataset contains ROSETTA NAVCAM RAW DATA of the Escort Phase 4 from 20th Oct 2015 to 17th Nov 2015 when at the vicinity of target 67P/CG. This data set V1.1 supersedes the V1.0. It includes updates of the Browse images, adding of the FITS version, clarification of calibration target, document updates and resolve other minor outstanding errata.
Description Data Set history: This data set is version V1.1. The changes from the V1.0 are listed below: - Full size BROWSE images - FITS versions added in EXTRAS directory - label content consistent with comet phase datasets - target names and types revised, mainly for 'CALIBRATION' of V1.0 - ERRATA of V1.0 addressed and removed (image orientation and geometry keywords). - updated EAICD version Data Set Overview: The data from the Rosetta Navigation Camera (NavCam) was extracted by Bernhard Geiger; the data set was constructed and submitted by Maud Barthelemy on behalf of the Planetary Science Archives (PSA). The data have been observed and measured from 20th Oct 2015 to 17th Nov 2015. The frequency of the navigation slots was of one image every five hours, with interruption by manoeuvres. 128 images were taken. In addition 301 context images were taken, which makes a total of 429 images. There is no lost or incomplete navigation images. There is no lost context images but one context image has been taken with lost rows due to bad weather over DSS-65. The orbiter was approaching the comet after far excursion. It was executing far fly-by arcs with distance ranging from 420km to 140km. The phase angle was around 65 degrees. All images in this data set are raw and uncalibrated data taken using the imaging mode. The data set contains images resolved using both NavCams onboard the Rosetta S/C and the DATA directory is organised to reflect this with two sub directories: - CAM1 - CAM2 CAM2 directory is only present if CAM2 observations are done. After hibernation exit CAM2 was only switched on to confirm its health status in a check-out. During the comet e...

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 fo...
