Abstract This dataset contains ROSETTA NAVCAM RADIOMETRICALLY CALIBRATED DATA of the PRELANDING MTP008 Phase from 23 Sep. 2014, 11:34:32 to 24 Oct. 2014, 06:22:59 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 2014-09-23 and 2014-10-24. The frequency of navigation slots was one 2x2 raster every four hours, with interruption by manoeuvres, which resulted in 740 navigation images. One originally planned raster was replaced by an additional manoeuvre (GMP slot 2.5 at 2014-10-01T11:30:00). In addition, 137 context images were taken, which gives a total of 877 images. For 2 navigation and 2 context images on October 18th, rows were lost due to bad weather at the ground station. 15 additional context images have lost rows due to an anomaly in the transfer to the spacecraft memory (which only occurred for context images). The comet distance ranged from 28km to 10km. The trajectory consisted of: one bound night-side arc inclined by 30 degrees with respect to the terminator plane and descending from a distance of roughly 28km to 18km -- circular orbits at about 18km -- elliptical orbit 20kmx10km -circular orbits at about 10km. 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 not included in the Level 3 datasets. The images can be found ...

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 ...
