   Extensive preparation is necessary to properly understand and interpret    
   the data in this data set.  Very little data set-specific detail is        
   provided here; this file is only intended as a brief introduction to the   
   volume structure of the files in this data set. Refer to the Required

   This document is a volume structure overview of the New Horizons (NH)      
   PEPSSI PLUTO Calibrated VERSION 2.0 Flight Data Archive.                   
                                                                              
   PEPSSI (Pluto Energetic Particles Spectrometer Science Investigation)      
   is a particle telescope and a time-of-flight (TOF) spectrometer that       
   measures ions and electrons over a broad range of energies and             
   angles.  The common data products contain these event and summary          
   measurements, accumulated over fixed periods of 86,400 seconds, with       
   each period in a single file comprising multiple binary tables.            
                                                                              
   This first-delivered data set includes low-time resolution data from       
   Approach, CORE and Departure subphases through the end of July, 2015.      
   It also includes two selected periods of high-resolution data from the     
   CORE subphase on the day of Pluto flyby (14 Jul 2015):  the first period   
   starts ninety minutes after Pluto closest approach and lasts about forty   
   minutes; the second starts nine hours after closest approach and lasts     
   about fifteen minutes.                                                     
                                                                              
                                                                              
Boilerplate disclaimer                                                        
----------------------                                                        
                                                                              
   All NH Raw and Calibrated data sets were generated in similar fashion by   
   an automated pipeline; as such, all of the information that follows is     
   boilerplate common to all such NH data sets, with pointers to locations    
   in this data set where more information can be found.  Refer to the data   
   set catalog (CATALOG/DATASET.CAT) and documentation (DOCUMENT/), as well   
   as the Required Reading referred to below, plus the files pointed to, for  
   information specific to the instrument and data of this data set.          
                                                                              
                                                                              
Required Reading                                                              
================                                                              
                                                                              
   Almost all of the New Horizons instruments have complex modes of           
   operation and complex, multi-part data products; users who want to         
   properly understand these data should expect to spend a significant        
   effort (at least a day per instrument) reading about and researching the   
   instrument, the data and the PDS product formats.  To support that, the    
   data producer has provided a Required Reading list as a starting point     
   directing the user to NH data set documentation; refer to the              
   DOCUMENT/AAA_GENERIC_README/AAARINFO.TXT file for more detail.

   All text documents and other meta information files such as                
   descriptions, PDS object definitions and detached PDS labels are           
   stream format files, with a carriage return (ASCII 13) and a line          
   feed character (ASCII 10) at the end of the record.  This allows           
   the files to be read by most current operating systems.

   Files on this volume are organized into a set of sub-directories           
   below the top-level directory. The following table shows the general       
   structure and content of these directories, but does not exhaustively      
   list every file in each directory.  See the *INFO.TXT files in each        
   top-level sub-directory for specific information about the files           
   under that directory.                                                      
                                                                              
   In this table, directory names are surrounded by forward slashes (/),      
   and the top-level of the volume is indicated by a single forward slash.
