Abstract This dataset contains ROSETTA NAVCAM RAW DATA of the Extension 2 Phase from 5th April 2016 to 3rd May 2016 when at the vicinity of target 67P/CG. This data set V1.1 supersedes the V1.0. It includes updates of the Browse images, 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 - target names and types revised, mainly for 'CALIBRATION' of V1.0 - correction in min/max pixel value which affected some images - 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 5th Apr 2016 to 3rd May 2016. The frequency of the navigation slots was of one 2x2 raster every five hours, with interruption by manoeuvres. One raster with four images was acquired with CAM2 in order to check its health status. 528 navigation images were taken. In addition 280 context images and 4 calibration ones were taken, which makes a total of 813 images. Three planned context images were not acquired due to ground station issue. There is one navigation image with lost rows due also to ground station issue. The orbiter was executing far fly-by arcs starting at 200km in the terminator plane and descending to 80km at 80degrees phase angle. Then, it executed a close fly-by through zero degree phase angle adn at 30km minimum distance. The outbound trajectory arc was captured at 140km. The orbiter approached the comet at 70km at terminator plane. The insertion into bound orbits was done by a night side arc with a maximum phase angle of 120 degrees that reduced the distance to 19km. The bound orbits at the end of MTP028 was at 19km distance. All images in this data set are raw and uncalibrated data taken using ...

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...
