Abstract The Micro-Imaging Dust Analysis System (MIDAS) is an instrument on the ROSETTA Orbiter that will provide 3D images and statistical parameters of pristine cometary particles, collected in the vicinity of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko. This data set includes all data from the CRUISE 4-2 mission phase. This release supersedes version 1.0. Version 2.0 was never generated for pre-comet phases.
Description This dataset includes MIDAS data from the ACTIVE CHECKOUT phase #9. Please note that images acquired during a passive observation are taken w/o approaching the surface and don't contain meaningful data. The current release is based on the results of the Comet Science Reviews held in Feb 2016, Oct 2017 and Oct 2018 and contains the updates defined in the MIDAS Enhanced Archive Data Delivery contract. Updates from V1.0 ----------------- Several updates were made in response to the Comet Science Reviews held in February 2016 and October 2017. Updates have been made to - Documentation: MID_EAICD.ASC|PDF, MID_COOR.ASC|PDF (/DOCUMENT) - Data browser : Updated ReadPDS library to V4.9 (/DOCUMENT/CODE) - Label files : Added X/Y scaling factor for images (/DATA/IMG/*.LBL) - Data files : Enhanced history files (/DATA/CAH*.TAB|TGH*.TAB) - Catalog files: Updated to latest versions (/DOCUMENT/CATALOG) - This file: : Improved image list facilitates data file referencing The former updates were done in V2.0 for comet phases but for pre-comet phases like this one V2.0 was never generated and these changes were implemented directlly in V3.0. Additionally Version 3.0 implements the dataset improvements agreed in the MIDAS Enhanced Archive Data Delivery Contract work packages 101, 102 and 302: - General : Updated contact names and addresses (VOLDESC.CAT) Updated dataset content description (AAREADME.TXT) - Documentation: Updated DOCINFO.TXT, MID_EAICD.ASC|PDF (/DOCUMENT) Added image scan table MID_IMG_CATALOG.TAB|LBL Added tip mapping table MID_TIP_CATALOG.TAB|LBL Added enhanced calibration report MID_CALIBRATION.PDF Added reconstructed images report MID_REC_IMAGES.PDF Added tip image catalogue MID_TIP_IMAGES.PDF Added MIDAS analysts notebook MID_ANALYSTS_NBOOK.PDF Added MIDAS science user guide MID_SCI_USER_GUIDE.PDF - Data files : Recalibrated images in X/Y/Z based on the evaluation of the results from the calibration target scans Com...

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 ...
