New Horizons LEISA Pluto Cruise Raw Data


Abstract: This data set contains Raw data taken by the New Horizons Linear Etalon Imaging Spectral Array instrument during the pluto cruise mission phase. This is VERSION 1.0 of this data set. The spacecraft was in hibernation for much of the Pluto Cruise mission phase, and the focus for RALPH (which includes both MVIC and LEISA sensors) during Annual CheckOuts one through eight (ACO1-8) was preparation for the Pluto Encounter in 2015, including functional tests, and calibrations. Observations performed during this phase for LEISA were for the Pluto Encounter Rehearsal in 2013, a test of the Sun in the Solar Illumination Assembly (SIA), Vega and Arcturus calibrations, and other calibrations (stray light, dark, flat fields, interference with other instruments).
