New Horizons PEPSSI Pluto Cruise Calibrated Data v2.0


Abstract: This data set contains Calibrated data taken by the New Horizons Pluto Energetic Particle Spectrometer Science Investigation instrument during the pluto cruise mission phase. This is VERSION 2.0 of this data set. Per the original mission plan for cruise operations, the PEPSSI instrument was initially off for Pluto Cruise and only turned on for functional tests and calibrations during Annual CheckOuts (ACO); ACOs usually generate engineering data, but there is some potential for science during those times. 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 2.0 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 (V2.0) include ongoing cruise observations from August, 2014 through January, 2015.
