Abstract This dataset contains ROSETTA NAVCAM RADIOMETRICALLY CALIBRATED DATA of the COMET ESCORT 2 MTP014 Phase from 11 Mar. 2015, 04:36:19 to 08 Apr. 2015, 11:22:54 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 2015-03-10 and 2015-04-08. The frequency of navigation slots was one 2x2 raster every five hours, with interruption by manoeuvres. This resulted in 512 navigation images. In addition, 53 context and 2 calibration images were taken, which gives a total of 567 images. After a spacecraft safe mode at 2015-03-29T12:15 a series of 7 planned rasters with 28 images were not executed. For a raster of 4 navigation images acquired after 2015-03-29T05:40 there were rows lost due to large antenna off-pointing caused by star tracker problems and gyro drift. 5 planned context images at the beginning of the MTP were not acquired due to late interface file submission. For the same reason 4 additional ones were taken with wrong parameters. 74 scheduled context images were not executed after the safe mode until the end of the MTP. The spacecraft performed far fly-by arcs with distances between 70 km and 100km. These were followed by a close fly-by with a distance of 15km from the comet centre and 40 degrees phase angle on March 28th at 13:00. The spacecraft went to safe mode on March 29th due to severe star tracker issues. The outbound trajectory reached a distance of 400km and by the end of the period the spacecraft went back to 140km. All images in this data set are radiometrically calibrated data taken using the ima...

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 ...
