The RAW data is the most primitive binary form available to the instrument team. These data are reformatted into the UNCALIBRATED data files which are ASCII (HEX) tables that are in turn used by the HIC team to produce higher level data products. The appropriate information concerning the operation of the instrument can be found in Garrard, Gehrels and Stone, Space Sci. Rev., 60, 305, 1992 [GARRARDETAL1992]. Data Processing =============== RAW DATA -------The data are raw binary packetized telemetry 2 data obtained from the Query Server at JPL. No further processing has been done. Every 2 seconds the HIC instrument zeros the rate counters and begins accumulation. In playback data 3 events per minor frame are selected (based on a priority scheme) and transmitted to the spacecraft along with 2 - 3 rates. Some of the less important / scientifically interesting rates are subcommutated and thus only transmitted once every 16 HIC packets (1 HIC x packet equals minor frames). In realtime data the rate counters are x accumulated for a series (the number of which depends on the bit rate) of 2 second intervals, while up to 60 events (selected by assigned priority) are transmitted during this accumulation period. Additional information on data processing can be found in the Space Research Lab technical document 86-02 (''Science Requirements Document'', [GARRARD1985] which is included on the archive volume in the DOCUMENTS directory. The different rates respond to different energy ranges. These are given in MeV/nucleon (for oxygen) below: Rate Energy Range (MeV/nuc for oxygen) ---------------------------------------------------------single LET E rates LE1 15.1 - 25.3 LE2 14.9 - 176.0 LE3 15.4 - 192.0 LE4 17.9 - 177.0 LE5 44.8 - 185.0 coincidence LET E rates DUBL 17.0 - 18.0 TRPL 18.0 - 24.0 WDSTP 30.0 - 48.0 WDPEN 48.0 - 185.0 single LET B rates LB1 1.9 - 5000.0 LB2 1.9 - 7000.0 LB3 2.1 - 13000.0 LB4 16.6 - 95000.0 coincidence LET B rates LETB 4.8 - 17.5 The logic conditions and approximate energy ranges for the other rates are given below.

These files are not meant for users of this product but for archiving the data files used by the HIC team to produce the higher quality products. Ancillary Data ============== There are no ancillary data uniquely associated with the HIC raw data archive. However, the spacecraft trajectory and attitude data, and the As-run Spacecraft Events Files that are provided on the same archive volume as these data are useful ancillary products for users of the HIC data. Coordinate System ================== These are scalar data. Software ======== There is no software provided with this archive. Media/Format ============ Encounter Data: ---------------------------------------------------------------------RAW DATA --------The data are stored in a rather complex and compact binary form called an IPF (Instrument Packet File). The details of where all of the bits are located are contained in Galileo project documents (3-280, 3-310, SFDU_DOC). These documents are included on the archive volumes with the data. UNCALIBRATED DATA ----------------This is an ASCII text file originally consisting of variable length data records. To make the records comply with PDS standards, blank spaces were added to fill in when a record did not have a full set of 3 data sets (see below). These files contain rate and event data which are relatively unprocessed and uncalibrated. The first 15 data fields are consistent for each record in the data file. These 15 fields contain information pertaining to: date, time, observation modes and rate data. Optional event data may appear after the rate data. Example of 2 records (remember these lines may show on your display as wrapped): 1995-12-07T15:30:08.439Z 3209036:84:0:0 S 200 1 000 -99 -99 -99 0 3833 29 3305 16577 T 4c2 035 153 027 T 5c6 168 0f3 100 1995-12-07T15:30:09.735Z 3209036:86:0:0 S 200 2 000 7 1 1 0 3993 29 3033 17473 T f48 06c 012 0f8 T 4c2 044 161 1d6 T b48 019 015 282 The fields are in the following order (Internal - SRL format): Field Contents Format Example ----- -------- ------ ------1 Year & DOY in IOC DateTime format.

UNCALIBRATED DATA ----------------This is an ASCII text file consisting of header lines followed by data blocks. The first six lines are header lines. Data blocks follow the header lines. Each data block may consist of up to three sections. HEADER LINES -----------Example: SCET: 1997-09-13T22:48:51.149Z SCLK: 4129489:00:0:0 TYPE: RT Level1b DATE: 2000-01-14T17:27:23Z Note: the 5th and 7th header lines are blank lines. The sixth line contains the column names. In the example above, the sixth line has a string length of 119 and may show above as wrapped. 1st Header Line: --------------SCET: 1997-09-13T22:48:51.149Z 15 = Caution events Field Content Format ----- ------- -----1 Literal 'SCET: ' 2 DateTime of 1st data PDS 3 Number of caution events '%6ld' 4 Literal ' = Caution events' 2nd Header Line: --------------SCLK: 317832879 Field Content Format ----- ------- -----1 Literal 'SCLK: ' 2 Value of SCLK '%9ld' 3rd Header Line: --------------TYPE: RT Level1b Field Content Format ----- ------- -----1 Literal 'TYPE: RT Level1b' 4th Header Line: --------------DATE: 2000-01-14T16:16:46Z Field Content Format ----- ------- -----1 Literal 'DATE: ' 2 This file's Creation Date PDS Header Lines 5 & 6 are blank. ----------------DATA BLOCKS ----------Each Data Block consists of three sections. The first section is rate data. This section will always be ten lines followed by an optional blank line. The optional second section is event data. If present, it may have up to 23 lines followed by an optional blank line. The third section is a summary of events. SECTION 1 (Rate Data) ---------This section has 10 lines. Only the first line will contain the date/time and SCET information for this data block. The rest of the first line has the same 14 data fields as the next nine lines. Example of 1st 2 lines of a Rate Data section: 1) 1997-09-13T22:48:51.149Z 4129489:00:0:0 152 0 253 0 253 3 253 3 152 0 253 4625 16 218625 2) 152 0 253 0 253 2 253 3 151 0 253 4529 15 206337 The columns are in the following order (Internal - SRL format): Column Heading Contents Format Example ------- -------- ------ ------DateTime ISO DateTime, PDS Format format: %4d-%02d-%02dT%02s:%02d:%06.3f example: 1995-12-07T15:30:08.439Z SCLK Derived from RT (Real-time) %09ld:00:0:0 4129489:00:0:0 level0 telemetry header data SCET DUBL Each of these headings %6ld %7ld 252 4 TRPL has two columns.

SECTION 2 (Optional Event Data) --------This section contains zero to 90 four-tuples of data. The four-tuples are grouped three to a line. The last line of this section may have one, two or three four-tuples in it.
