New Horizons SWAP Pluto Cruise Raw Data v3.0


Abstract: This data set contains Raw data taken by the New Horizons Solar Wind Around Pluto instrument during the pluto cruise mission phase. This is VERSION 3.0 of this data set. Per the original mission plan for cruise operations, the SWAP instrument was off for the first 460+ days of Pluto Cruise. After that the operations were sporadic (just a few days in 2009) and mostly Science, alternating with Channel Electron Multiplier gain tests during Annual CheckOuts. After extensive testing in early 2012, in July of that year the project approved daily science operations for the SWAP and PEPSSI instruments throughout the rest of the cruise to Pluto. The changes in Version 3.0 were re-running of the ancillary data in the data product, updated geometry from newer SPICE kernels, minor editing of the documentation, catalogs, etc., and resolution of liens from the December, 2014 review, plus those from the May, 2016 review of the Pluto Encounter data sets. New observations added with this version (V3.0) include ongoing cruise observations from August, 2014 through January, 2015.
