ROSETTA CK Files                                                                
  This "aareadme.txt" file describes the contents of the KERNELS/CK             
  directory of the ROSETTA SPICE data server. It also provides the file         
  naming conventions used for the ROSETTA CK kernels, and it provides           
  identification of the most current version of each kind of CK file.           
  Some of these CK files are produced by an automated system located at ESAC,   
  operated by the ROSETTA Science Ground Segment. We have chosen                
  to use the ESOC naming convention for CK files, which are converted from      
  ESOC's DDID Attitude files.                                                   
  The contents and time span covered by any CK file may be easily determined    
  using the "ckbrief" utility program available in all copies of the            
  SPICE Toolkit. Examples of usage:                                             
     %ckbrief  <ck_file_name> <sclk_file_name> <lsk_file_name>                  
  This utility requires additionally a sclk file and a lsk file; use the        
  latest versions of these files.                                               
  Descriptive information about how/why/when an CK file was created is          
  usually available in the "comment area" of the file. This may be viewed       
  using the "commnt" utility program available in all copies of the SPICE       
  Toolkit. Use the "-r" option to read the comments. Example:                   
    %commnt -r <ck_file_name>                                                   
  All binary CK files (*.BC) contained in this directory are unix binary        
  files. These may be used as is (without format conversion) in a non-unix      
  environment when using any recent version of the SPICE Toolkit (Version       
  N0052 or later).  [Ref 3b]

         nnn            is the planning cycle counter on 3 digits, starting from

CATT kernels are created using an 'artificial' clock kernel defined inside the  
ROS_CHURYUMOV_Vvv.TF frames kernel. Therefore, loading the frames kernel is     
necessary in order to use the CATT kernels.                                     
RATM kernels shall be used with the S/C clock kernel 'ros_triv.tsc' available in
the sclk directory.                                                             
All other kernels shall be used with the latest available Rosetta nominal kernel
