Abstract This archive contains derived data from the RPC-MIP instrument on-board ROSETTA Orbiter acquired during the PRELANDING mission phase. Observations are performed in the vicinity of comet 67P/C-G. It also contains documentation which describes the RPC-MIP experiment. The data archived in this data set conform to the Planetary Data System Standards, Version 3.6.
Description Data Set Overview = This dataset contains the plasma electron density derived from electric field mutual impedance spectra measured by RPC-MIP in active modes for PRL (PRELANDING) mission phase, between 2014/01/21 and 2014/11/18. Derived data collected in this dataset are referred as CODMAC Level 5 products. Data RPC-MIP plasma electron density is obtained by on-ground analysis of RPC-MIP spectra acquired when RPC-MIP operated in active modes (SDL and LDL). Automatic algorithms have been developed to extract characteristics features from spectra. These features are related to plasma signatures and enabled in certain conditions to derive the plasma frequency and therefore the plasma electron density. Different algorithms have been developed to adapt the different operational modes of the instrument and to account for instrumental limitations (specific to each operation mode). While derived electron density is believed to be of sufficient quality for science use, false detections or misinterpretations cannot be avoided. The user is invited to use these data with caution and always consider quality values associated to density values. A more detailed description of the plasma electron density dataset can be found in the documentation enclosed in the dataset. Processing Only CODMAC Level 5 data are present in this data set.

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 ...
