Radio Occultation, Saturn Encounter (MED)

NSSDCA ID: PSPA-00078

Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1980-11-13 to 1980-11-13

Description

These experimenter-supplied, radio occultation, Saturn encounter data are on binary magnetic tape created on a Data General Eclipse S-250 computer. After filtering and decimation, the data from the medium band system were stored in records 600 complex (64 bits) long. The first 88 complex words comprise a header consisting of time and day of first sample; number of complex samples per record; sample period (microseconds); decimation ratio; first and last frequency in passband (Hz); date and time of processing; tape and file identification; spacecraft and station numbers; and real-time recorder and data channel number. Following the header information are 512 complex data values representing the output from the filtering and decimation process.
