NEAR Infrared Spectrometer (NIS) Level 1B Data Archive (PDS)

NSSDCA ID: PSPG-00719

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

Time span: 1996-02-20 to 2001-02-12

Description

This data set contains raw telemetry data, provided in engineering units, from the NEAR infrared spectrometer (NIS). In addition to the raw spectrometer data, a calibration file and algorithm are available. The data are in the form of FITS files with atached FITS headers and detached PDS labels. Files contain all data for one day. The files are subdivided into one file per NIS acquisition sequence. Each file has a 11520 byte ASCII header followed by 16-bit binary image data. The binary image data consists of 108 columns of spectral and ancillary housekeeping information and a variable number of rows (one row per spectrum) depending on the specific sequence.

The data are divided into volumes which contain cruise, Eros fly-by, Eros orbit, and Earth fly-by data. The volumes containing each file, the PDS ID, and the data range covered (in the form YYYYDDD) are given below:

NNCRU1_0001 NEAR-A-NIS-2-EDR-CRUISE1-V1.0 1996051 - 1997175

NNCRU2_0001 NEAR-A-NIS-2-EDR-CRUISE2-V1.0 1997179 - 1998022

NNCRU3_0001 NEAR-A-NIS-2-EDR-CRUISE3-V1.0 1998027 - 1998356

NNCRU4_0001 NEAR-A-NIS-2-EDR-CRUISE4-V1.0 1998358 - 2000010

NNERFB_0001 NEAR-A-NIS-2-EDR-EROS/FLY/BY-V1.0 1998357 - 1998357

NNEROS_0001 NEAR-A-NIS-2-EDR-EROS/ORBIT-V1.0 2000011 - 2001043

NNERTH_0001 NEAR-A-NIS-2-EDR-EARTH-V1.0 1998023 - 1998026

All data is stored on one DVD volume (NNCOLL_1001) for archive. Total data quantity is 211.75 Mb.
