Dawn RSS Raw Data Bundle For Asteroid 4 Vesta (PDS)


Availability: Archived at NSSDC, accessible from elsewhere


This bundle contains raw radio data that can be used to determine the position and velocity of the DAWN spacecraft during its encounter with 4 Vesta. The bundle also contains the calibration data for the effects of Earth's ionosphere and troposphere, meteorological conditions at stations of the NASA Deep Space Network, thruster activity, spacecraft mass history, and changes in spacecraft antenna selection. The data were used to determine the gravity field and shape of 4 Vesta. Documents describing these data are also included in the bundle. The bundle is a migration of data from the original PDS3 archive. Data available online at:
