Abstract This dataset contains EDITED RAW DATA of the Mars encounter. Included are the data taken between 29 Aug 2006 and 27 Feb 2007.
Description Data Set Overview = This data set includes data obtained by IES during the period 29 Aug 2006 - 27 Feb 2007 (referred to as the Mars swingby period by ESA for reference although the instrument operation was not continuous during this period). Operation on August 28, 2006 encompassed passive checkout PC3, and the data show a period of solar wind measurements. Operation on December 6, 7, and 19, 2006 encompassed active checkout PC4, and the data show periods of solar wind measurements. The December 6 operation involved isolating a noisy electron channel (number 11). The December 19 operation included the standard passive checkout, some look up table uploads and a 'cartwheel' test in an attempt to understand the S/C attitude range for which IES can view the solar wind. This latter test was not executed properly and was repeated. Operations on February 23 to 27, 2007 encompassed the swingby of Mars. 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 grouped by date and written out to PDS compliant archive data files. One data file is created for each day. IESGS also generates the labels for the archive data files. IES science products, archive and label files, and limited spectrograms are available to team scientists on the IESGS website. Coordinate System = In order to determine IES ...

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...
