Abstract This data set contains Spectroscopic and Continuum data, in the form of table files, taken during the Commissioning phase of the Rosetta mission by the MIRO instrument. These data have been calibrated to antenna temperatures. Version 1.1 added UTC to the data files, added a GEOMETRY directory and incorporated a number of minor documentation additions and corrections.
Description Data Set Overview = The data included in this data set cover the following periods and activities: (All are in 2004, so Year is omitted from dates.) Start Time Stop Time Activity (mm-dd/hh:mm) (mm-dd/hh:mm) 03-30/22:37 03-31/03:28 Instrument Checkout 03-31/12:35 04-03/12:49 Venus spiral scans to map boresight 04-23/03:31 04-24/15:20 Earth spiral scans to map boresight 04-30/04:00 04-30/16:30 Observation of Comet Linear 05-17/03:45 05-17/16:15 Observation of Comet Linear 09-11/03:35 09-11/06:05 Pointing-1 Scenario (staring at Pleiades) 09-20/13:20 09-22/02:00 Interference-1 scenario 09-24/06:34 09-24/09:05 Observation of Venus (Pointing-2 Scenario) 09-24/12:00 09-24/14:30 Observation of Vega (Pointing-2 Scenario) 09-24/19:30 09-25/01:40 Instrument Checkout (Pointing-2 Scenario) 09-25/03:00 09-25/14:45 Observation of Earth (Pointing-2 Scenario) 09-28/03:30 09-28/06:18 Observation of Area 98 (Pointing-2 Scenario) 09-28/06:18 09-28/09:00 Observation of M42 (Pointing-2 Scenario) 10-12/20:00 10-13/13:15 Interference-2 scenario Only the spiral scans and the observations of Comet Linear had any scientific value and were analyzed by the MIRO team. The Venus spiral scans contained three sets of scans, in the interval 13:40 - 19:00 of 03-31, 04-01 and 04-02 UTC. During this period two failures of the MIRO instrument occurred, on 04.01, at 15:07 and 20:20 UTC. The second caused the instrument to Safe itself, but it recovered in time for the third scan. The failures were determined to have been due to an error in a command procedure. This was fixed and the error has not occurred since. Modification History Version 1.1 (Oct. 2010): - Added UTC to all data files, revised *.FMT files and other documentation accordingly. - Added GEOMETRY directory. - Minor corrections and additions. - Added LOG file to DOCUMENT 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 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...
