DART Raw Images for the Didymos Reconnaissance and Asteroid Camera for OpNav (DRACO) instrument v2.0

A newer version of this data set has been publicly released. Go here for the current version.


Abstract: This data collection contains the raw images returned by the Didymos Reconnaissance and Asteroid Camera for Optical navigation (DRACO) instrument flown aboard the impactor spacecraft of NASA's Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission. These images have been put into a simple 2D FITS format ready for calibration and analysis. The DART mission was a planetary defense mission designed to test and measure the deflection caused by a kinetic impactor (the spacecraft) on the orbit of Dimorphos asteroid around its primary, (65803) Didymos.
