New Horizons SDC Pluto Encounter Raw Data v3.0


Abstract: This data set contains Raw data taken by the New Horizons Student Dust Counter instrument during the Pluto encounter mission phase. This is VERSION 3.0 of this data set. This data set contains SDC observations taken during the the Approach (Jan-Jul, 2015), Encounter, Departure, and Transition mission sub-phases, including flyby observations taken on 14 July, 2015, and departure and calibration data through late October, 2016. This data set completes the Pluto mission phase deliveries for SDC. This is version 3.0 of this data set. Changes since version 2.0 include the final batch of Pluto mission phase data, downlinked between the end of January, 2016 and late in October, 2016, including a Stim calibration in July. Also, updates were made to the documentation and catalog files, primarily to implement suggestions from the V2.0 peer review. A new table of SDC Ram (velocity) ancillary data has been provided, and the SDC on/off and Stim tables have been extended in time to cover the new data.
