Apollo 15 ALSEP ARCSAV SIDE/CCIG Raw Cleaned ASCII Data Collection (1975-092 to 1975-181) (PDS)


Availability: Archived at NSSDC, accessible from elsewhere


This collection contains fixed-width ASCII files of daily raw cleaned science and engineering measurements acquired by the Suprathermal Ion Detector Experiment (SIDE) and the Cold Cathode Ion Gage Experiment (CCIG; also known as the Cold Cathode Gage Experiment for the time span of 02 April through 30 June 1975. These data were extracted from NASA's original Apollo Lunar Surface Experiments Package (ALSEP) archive tapes, also known as ARCSAV tapes, that recorded 24-hour, time-edited, and rearranged raw binary data transmitted from the Moon. The extracted binary data were corrected for obvious tape read errors then transformed to ASCII format for this archive. This collection also includes one ASCII file of SIDE/CCIG-related command verification data extracted from the ARCSAV binary files. Data available online at:
