Abstract This release contains the calibrated data of the VIRTIS instrument on board of the spacecraft Rosetta. This volume contains data from the PRELANDING MTP008 phase, which occurred from 2014-09-23 to 2014-10-24 when at the vicinity of comet 67P. This data set V2.0 supersedes V1.0. It includes major updates on the data and documentation.
Description Required Reading The format of all VIRTIS data are described in detail by the EAICD document located in the /DOCUMENT directory. VIRTIS team strongly recommends reading this documentation before using the data. Data Set history This data set is version V2.0. The changes from the V1.0 enclose the closure of the liens from the 2017 review: - updates of documents such as EAICD, M and H calibration. - updates of AAREADME, ERRATA and DATASET.CAT - Updates of the data as the team found a bug in the calibration pipeline. Data Set Overview = This data set contains cal data acquired by the Rosetta Orbiter VIRTIS spectrometer during the PRELANDING MTP004 of the Rosetta mission. Processing The data in this data set are cal, CODMAC Level 3 data. Only the calibration algorithm has been applied to the data. Data The data are in PDS format. A detailed description of the data format is given in the VIRTIS EAICD document located in the DOCUMENT directory of this data set. Ancillary Data No ancillary data included in this data set. Coordinate System = The geometry items SC_SUN_POSITION_VECTOR, SC_TARGET_POSITION_VECTOR and SC_TARGET_VELOCITY_VECTOR provided in the label of the data product are relative to the Earth Mean Equator frame of J2000. <>_SPACECRAFT_LATITUDE, <>_SPACECRAFT_LONGITUDE are given in the PLANETOCENTRIC coordinate system. These parameters are corrected by planetary and stellar aberrations. Distances are given in km, angles in degrees. Software The data can be accessed with the software IDL routines provided and documented in the EXTRAS 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...
