New Horizons MVIC Pluto Encounter Calibrated Data v2.0


Abstract: This data set contains Calibrated data taken by the New Horizons Multispectral Visible Imaging Camera instrument during the Pluto encounter mission phase. This is VERSION 2.0 of this data set. This data set contains MVIC observations taken during the the Approach (Jan-Jul, 2015) and Encounter mission sub-phases, including flyby observations taken on 14.July, 2015; the data are limited to those downlinked from the spacecraft as of the end of January, 2016. The rest of the downlinked data for this mission phase will be delivered in a future data set. Refer to the data set description above and the sequence table provided in the documentation for more detail about which observations are present in this data set. This is version 2.0 of this data set. Changes since version 1.0 include data downlinked between the end of July, 2015 and the end of January, 2016. These observations include Charon, Nix and Hydra observations from the day of encounter, Pluto and Charon Multi-maps and Multi-longtudes from Approach, full-frame versions of observations downlinked as sub-framed (windowed) versions for version 1.0, Kerberos and Styx observations, Pluto High-phase and Color observations, calibration Flats, and departure Ring-search observations taken in November, 2015. Also, updates were made to the documentation and catalog files, primarily to resolve liens from the V1.0 peer review.
