Abstract The Micro-Imaging Dust Analysis System (MIDAS) is an instrument on the ROSETTA Orbiter that will provide 3D images and statistical parameters of pristine cometary particles, collected in the vicinity of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. This data set includes all images with identified dust particles, that have been collected in the PRELANDING to EXTENDED 3 mission phases. The identified particles are listed in a dedicated catalogue, which is implemented as a CSV table located in the /DATA directory (MID_PARTICLE_TABLE.TAB). Additional information can be found in the ROSETTA-MIDAS Particle Catalogue Document (MID_PARTICLE_CATALOG.PDF). Current dataset superceds V1.0 (RO-C-MIDAS-5-PRL-TO-EXT3-V1.0) dataset after fixing target numbers in browse images and particle catalogue.
Description This dataset includes MIDAS images from the ROSETTA Prelanding Phase up to and including the Extended Phase 3. The current release is based on the results of the Comet Science Reviews held in Feb 2016, Oct 2017 and Oct 2018 and contains the updates defined in the MIDAS Enhanced Archive Data Delivery contract. Current dataset superceds V1.0 (RO-C-MIDAS-5-PRL-TO-EXT3-V1.0) dataset after fixing target numbers in browse images and particle catalogue. The following images can be found in the dataset (for a given image, the name of the respective label file is composed of the file path associated with the preceding medium term planning period MTPxxx and the image identifier listed in the second column): ---------------------------------------------------------------------Scenario DAQ (YYDDDhhmm) Target Tip ImgSize StepSize D MM (D = main scan direction, MM = measurement mode) ---------------------------------------------------------------------MTP001 /DATA/IMG/IMG_1408606_1409700__ZS.LBL ---------------------------------------------------------------------STP001 001 140860813-140860828 1 DAQ 16 32x 32 1000x 1000 X CON 002 140860834-140860849 1 DAQ 16 32x 32 1000x 1000 Y CON 003 140871858-140871901 1 DAQ 1 256x256 24x 24 X DYN 004 140872204-140872207 1 DAQ 1 256x256 24x 24 X DYN 005 140900830-140900830 33 DAQ 6 160x192 55x 55 X DYN 006 140902057-140910240 33 DAQ 6 160x192 55x 55 X DYN 007 140940721-140941409 2 CAL 6 256x256 10x 10 X DYN 008 140950545-140951334 3 CAL 6 256x256 15x 15 X DYN 009 140960545-140961224 4 CAL 6 192x192 10x 10 X DYN ---------------------------------------------------------------------MTP002 /DATA/IMG/IMG_1409700_1409716__ZS.LBL ---------------------------------------------------------------------STP002 001 140970445-140971009 9 DAQ 6 128x128 41x 41 X DYN 003 140971406-140971514 9 DAQ 6 128x128 8x 8 X DYN ---------------------------------------------------------------------MTP003 /DATA/I...

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 ...
