Abstract This dataset contains ROSETTA NAVCAM RAW DATA of the Extension 3 Phase from 9th Aug 2016 to 2nd Sep 2016 when at the vicinity of target 67P/CG. This data set V1.1 supersedes the V1.0. It includes document updates and resolve other outstanding errata.
Description Data Set history: This data set is version V1.1. The changes from the V1.0 are listed below: - small differences for trajectory dependent geometry variables in MTP033 after reprocessing with final orbit kernels - correction in min/max pixel value which affected some images - updated EAICD version - ERRATA of V1.0 addressed and removed (image orientation and geometry keywords). - GEO_NAVCAM*_INDEX and NAVCAM*_INDEX added into the INDEX directory. 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 9th Aug 2016 to 2nd Sep 2016. The frequency of the navigation slots was of one image every hour, with interruption by manoeuvre slots and WAC imaging. 292 navigation images were taken. There was 1 lost navigation image and 1 with lost rows, both due to bad weather at the ground station. The orbiter was in elliptical orbits with a 20 degrees tilt with respect to the terminator plane, i.e. the phase angle ranged between 70 and 110 degrees. The pericentre was gradually reduced and the apocentre increased while maintaining a constant orbital period of 3 days: 13.7km, 7.5km, 13.7km, 6.7km, 14.4km, 6.0km, 15.1km, 5.5km, 15.5km, 5.0km, 15.9km, 4.6km, 16.2km, 4.4km, 16.4km. 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 ...

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...
