Saturn IRIS Radiance Data

NSSDCA ID: PSPA-00118

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

Time span: 1980-10-22 to 1980-11-18

Description

This reduced data set contains radiance values as a function of wave number, calibrated thermal emission spectra, navigation and pointing data, and housekeeping data for the Saturn encounter of Voyager 1. The data were originally written in binary format on an IBM 360 and supplied to NSSDC by the experimenter. The first 500 bytes of each logical record are header and ephemeris information, and calibrated thermal emission spectra. This is followed by 11,076 bytes containing radiance values as a function of increasing wave number. Each tape contains IRIS records ordered by time. Documentation for these tapes is contained in "Voyager Infrared Interferometer Spectrometer and Radiometer (IRIS)-Documentation for Reduced Data Records (RDR) for the Saturnian System," 1982, NASA X-693-82-30.
