Abstract This dataset contains EDITED DATA of the Rosetta RPCIES instrument taken during the Prelanding phase (PRL). The target of this phase was comet 67P/CHURYUMOV-GERASIMENKO 1 (1969 R1). Included are the data taken between 21 Jan 2014 and 19 Nov 2014. This dataset supercedes the previous RO-C-RPCIES-2-PRL-V1.0 dataset. The primary change is the addition of the cycle duration field to the data products.
Description Data Set Overview = The following describes the nature of instrument operation during the various periods for which IES data are available in this submission. In all cases the data are electron and ion counts as function of energy, azimuth (direction in the instrument symmetry plane) and ^ation (angle above or below the symmetry plane). Post hibernation commissioning: IES turned on 24 march 2014 for Low Voltage checkout, operated ~19:50 to ~20:50 UTC (no useful science data), High Voltage checkout (all times UTC): 22:44:59 to 22:53:31; 25 March: 00:42:51 to 03:37:15, 21:34:35 to 23:56:59; 26 March: 00:41:15 to 01:08:59 and 01:16:27 to 02:09:15 (little useful science data except a small amount of solar wind is evident in the early part of the 25 March 2014 and intermittently in 26 March 2014 files). Approach phase: 9 May 2014 15:23:00 to 20 May 11:25:41.

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 ...
