Abstract This dataset contains EDITED RAW DATA of the Earth Swingby 2 (EAR2). Included are the data taken between 16 Sep 2007 and 17 Nov 2007.
Description Data Set Overview = This data set includes data obtained by IES during the period 13 Sep 2007 - 13 Dec 2007 (referred to as the Earth Swingby 2 period by ESA for reference although the instrument operation was not continuous during this period). Operation during the period September 13, 16, 17, 27, and 28, 2007 encompassed active checkout 6, with Rosetta in the solar wind throughout. Operation included Table and software patch uploads (13 September). an internal sequence test (16 September), an unsuccessful directional resolution test (16 and 17 September) and a usual passive checkout (27 and 28 September). Operation during the period November 10-17 encompassed the second Earth flyby (ESB2). IES began operation with Rosetta in the distant geotail. approaching from below Earth. Rosetta turned upward on 13 November, past close approach (CA) at approximately 2100 UT and continued outward through the magnetosheath and bow shock into the solar wind later that day and into 14 November, when IES was turned off near 1600 UT. The break in IES data near the end of 12 November resulted from IES being turned off during thruster firing and the 2 hr gap around CA resulted from turning off IES to protect the instrument from the effects of the radiation belts. Processing All Rosetta Plasma Consortium (RPC) data packets are transmitted together during downlinks with Rosetta. RPC data are retrieved from the Data Distribution System (DDS) at European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) to a central RPC data server at Imperial College London. Data for IES is copied from the RPC central data server by IESGS at Southwest Research Institute. The pipeline processing software is the IES Ground System (IESGS). IESGS extracts IES CCSDS packets from the RPC collective data files stored on the RPC central data server at Imperial College. These packets are used to build ion and electron data products. The data products are g...

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-50...
