Abstract This dataset contains ROSETTA NAVCAM RADIOMETRICALLY CALIBRATED DATA of the PRELANDING MTP009 Phase from 24 Oct. 2014, 11:34:32 to 21 Nov. 2014, 23:00:03 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 2014-10-24 and 2014-11-21. The frequency of navigation slots was (nominal cadence interrupted by manoeuvres): - from 2014-10-24T10:00:00 to 2014-11-03T12:00:00 : one 2x2 raster with four images every four hours - from 2014-11-03T12:00:00 to 2014-11-15T12:00:00 : one 2x2 raster with four images every two hours - from 2014-11-15T12:00:00 to 2014-11-21T23:25:00 : one 2x2 raster with four images every four hours - on 2014-11-12 (lander separation and descent): 26 additional images (7.5 rasters). This resulted in 4*229+26=942 navigation images. In addition, 75 context and 4 calibration images were taken, which gives a total of 1021 images. 8 navigation images (two rasters) and 3 context images were lost on 2014-11-20 because the NAVCAM was switched off due to an anomaly. For 54 context images, rows were lost due to an anomaly in the transfer to the spacecraft memory (which only occurred for context images). The comet distance ranged from 10km to 50km. At the beginning of the period the spacecraft was in circular orbits at about 10km distance from the comet centre. Then, it moved to a 30km orbit inclined with respect to terminator plane, followed by a close fly-by at 16.5km distance for Lander delivery. This was followed by an outbound trajectory arc to 50km distance and re-insertion into bound orbits at 30...

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 ...
