Abstract This dataset contains ROSETTA NAVCAM RAW DATA of the Prelanding Phase from 23rd Sep 2014 to 24th Oct 2014 before reaching 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 - 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 23rd Sep 2014 to 24th Oct 2014. The frequency of the navigation slots was of one 2x2 raster every four hours, with interruption by manoeuvres. This gave 740 navigation images. One originally planned raster was replaced by an additional manoeuvre (GMP slot 2.5 at 2014-10-01T11:30:00). 2 navigation and 2 context images had lost rows due to bad weather at the ground station on 2014-10-18. 15 context images had lost rows (anomaly in the transfer to the spacecraft memory only occurring for context images). The comet distance rages were from 28 km to 10 km. The trajectory was one bound night-side arc inclined by 30degrees with respect to the terminator plane and descending from a distance of roughly 28km to 18km -- circular orbits at about 18km -- elliptical orbit 20kmx10km -- circular orbits at about 10km. All images in this data set are raw and uncalibrated data taken using the imaging mode. The data set contains images resolved 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...
