Abstract This dataset contains EDITED RAW DATA of Earth swingby 1 phase. Included are the data taken between 4 Mar 2005 and 29 Mar 2005.
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). March 4 & 5, 2005. This data set was obtained during the first Earth swingby. During the March 4 portion Rosetta was traveling up the magnetotail, and crossed into Earth's radiation belts. That day happened to be a day of very quiet solar wind and hence the tail plasma density was very low. Just prior to crossing into the radiation belts IES was turned off for safety reasons and was turned back on after emerging. Rosetta then passed through the magnetosheath and bow shock into the solar wind. The spacecraft was performing some turning maneuvers for some time so the solar wind was not observed by IES until later. March 29, 2005. This data set was obtained during PC0, the first passive checkout. Approximately 5 hours of data were obtained in the solar wind. This was apparently a period of very low alpha particle density, they being barely discernable in the data. 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). IESGS extracts IES CCSDS packets from the RPC collective data files stored on the RPC central data server at Imperial College. These packets are used to build ion and electron data products. The data products are grouped by date and wri...

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-...
