Abstract This dataset contains ROSETTA NAVCAM RADIOMETRICALLY CALIBRATED DATA of the ROSETTA EXTENSION 2 MTP028 Phase from 06 Apr. 2016, 06:04:22 to 03 May. 2016, 23:17:53 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 2016-04-05 and 2016-05-03. The frequency of navigation slots was one 2x2 raster every five hours, with interruption by manoeuvres. One raster with four images was acquired with CAM2 in order to check its health status. This resulted in 528 navigation images. In addition, 280 context and 5 calibration images were taken, which gives a total of 813 images. Three planned context images were not acquired due to commanding issues. For one navigation and two context images, rows were lost due to ground station problems. The spacecraft performed far fly-by arcs starting at 200km in the terminator plane and then descending to 80km at 80 degrees phase angle. Afterwards, it executed a close fly-by through zero degree phase angle at 30km minimum distance. The outbound trajectory arc was captured at 140km before approaching the comet to 70km in the terminator plane. For insertion into bound orbits a night side arc with a maximum phase angle of 120 degrees reduced the distance to 19km. 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 this was used mainly as a backup and the few images taken with it have not been calibrated and are n...

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 ...
