Principal Investigator (PI) Format (raw)


Availability: Proprietary Data - Contact Agent for More Information


This data set is the original data stream provided to the PI, and contains the complete counting rate and housekeeping data stream from the Suprathermal Ion Detector Experiment (SIDE). This data set is written in SDS 24-bit binary representation, and is designated proprietary. Processing of earlier data in this format was done to produce the intermediate data format called NPAK, which was processed at Rice University to generate the publicly-available Mass Analyzer and Total Ion Detector data sets, which have NSSDC IDs 71-063C-05C and 71-063C-05F, respectively. This proprietary data set is from later time periods that were not processed by Rice. It is anticipated that these later data will be processed and results will be appended to the data sets mentioned.
