Abstract This dataset contains EDITED RAW DATA of commissioning calibration (CVP). Included are the data taken between 18 Mar 2004 and 14 Oct 2004.
Description Data Set Overview = The following describes the nature of instrument operation during the various periods for which IES data are available in this submission. In all cases the data are raw electron and ion counts as function of energy, azimuth (direction in the instrument symmetry plane) and ^ation (angle above or below the symmetry plane). Except for most of the data obtained during the first Earth Swingby (ESB1) all data were obtained in the solar wind near 1 AU. The period from March to October 2004 represent various phases of instrument commissioning, i.e. the first exercises of IES in space after launch. September 8-10, 2004. This data set was obtained during the first high voltage turn-on in space and shows that IES fully survived launch. The data clearly show the expected solar wind protons and alpha particles as well as the electron distribution. September 20-23 and October 13-14, 2004. This data set was obtained during the so-called 'Interference Scenario' to investigate any possible electrical interference between instruments or spacecraft subsystems. Various combinations of instruments were operated at different times, hence the intermittent nature of the IES data. September 23 & 30, 2004. This data set was obtained during the so-called 'Pointing Scenario' to investigate any spacecraft attitude effects on the payload. Hence the IES data show the solar wind beam changing in direction as the spacecraft orientation changed. Parameters N/A Processing All Rosetta Plasma Consortium (RPC) data packets are transmitted together during downlinks with Rosetta. RPC data are retrieved from the Data Distribution System (DDS) at European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) to a central RPC data server at Imperial College London. Data for IES is copied from the RPC central data server by IESGS at Southwest Research Institute. The pipeline processing software is the IES Ground System (IESGS...

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 the Rosetta Science Management Plan [RO-EST-PL-0001] and in papers [GLASSMEIERETAL2007A]. A detailed description of the mission analysis can be found in the Consolidated Report on Mission Analysis [RO-ESC-RP-5500], the ROSETTA User Manual [RO-DSS-MA-1001], and the flight Operations Plan [RO-ESC-PL-...
