Abstract This data set contains Spectroscopic, Continuum and Engineering data, in the form of table files, for the ground thermal-vacuum tests performed at NASA/JPL for the MIRO instrument of the Rosetta mission.
Description Data Set Overview = This data set contains spectroscopic, continuum and engineering (housekeeping) data acquired by the MIRO instrument during ground testing in the thermal- vacuum facility at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. These tests were designed by Sam Gulkis, Peg Frerking, Cindy Kahn and Timothy Koch. The entire MIRO team at JPL participated (in shifts) in these tests, since the instrument was on for many weeks continuously and required round-the clock monitoring. The main objectives of these tests were: 1) to characterize the performance of the MIRO instrument throughout the the temperature range in which it is expected to operate (-15C to +55C). 2) to test the software algorithms for operations and onboard data handling. Hardware tests were performed in thermal vacuum to determine radiometry characteristics and temperature suceptabilities. Software commands were ckecked to ensure functionality of commands in TV environment. It should be emphasized that this data set was not used to attempt to perform a radiometric or frequency calibration of the MIRO data. These calibrations are performed in flight, by observations of known astronomical targets. The procedure description (CALIBRATION_PROC) and log files for these tests are included in the DOCUMENT directory of this data set.

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 the Rosetta Science Management Plan [RO-EST-PL-0001] and in papers [GLASSMEIERETAL2007A]. A detailed description of the mission analysis can be found in the Consolidated Report on Mission Analysis [RO-ESC-RP-5500], the ROSETTA User Manual [RO-DSS-MA-1001], and the flight Operations Plan [RO-ESC-PL-...
