Abstract This dataset contains ROSETTA NAVCAM RADIOMETRICALLY CALIBRATED DATA of the COMET ESCORT 1 MTP013 Phase from 11 Feb. 2015, 04:38:06 to 10 Mar. 2015, 23:22:54 when at the vicinity of target 67P/CG.
Description Data Set history: First version Data Set Overview: The data from the Rosetta Navigation Camera (NavCam) were calibrated by Bernhard Geiger; the processing pipeline was implemented by Rafael Andres; the data set was constructed and submitted by Diego Fraga Agudo on behalf of the Planetary Science Archives (PSA). The data were acquired between 2015-02-10 and 2015-03-10. The frequency of navigation slots was one 2x2 raster every five hours, with interruption by manoeuvres. This resulted in 517 navigation images. In addition, 257 context images were taken. Hence the total number of images is 774. Three images of one raster (starting at 2015-02-21T04:15:00) were lost at downlink due to bad weather. In addition, there were 6 navigation and 5 context images with lost rows due to bad weather and ground station problems. The spacecraft performed a far fly-by arc in the terminator plane at distances between 50km and 100km. It was followed by a close fly-by at 8km from the comet centre and zero degree phase angle. The outbound trajectory was then captured at a distance of 255km in the terminator plane. The spacecraft approached the comet in a descending arc down to 75km at 50 degrees phase angle. This was followed by a far fly-by arc with a minimum distance of 55km through zero degree phase angle. Finally, far fly-by arcs were executed at distances between 70km and 110km with phase angles between 40 and 65 degrees. All images in this data set are radiometrically calibrated data taken using the imaging mode. The data set contains images using NavCam CAM1 onboard the Rosetta S/C. NavCam instrument contains a second identical camera called CAM2 but thi...

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 ...
