This data set contains instrument raw data obtained by the Fluxgate           
Magnetometer (RPC-MAG) onboard the ROSETTA spacecraft from the MARS Flyby     
(MSB) Phase. The covered data period is August 29, 2006  until                
May 22, 2007. On August 29 the Passive Checkout PC3 was executed. In          
November and December 2006 the Passive Checkout PC4 took place. The very      
Mars Flyby happened between February 23 and February 27, 2007 with the        
Closest Approach on February 25, 2007 at 01:58 UTC. On May 22 the Passive     
Checkout PC5 was executed.                                                    
The magnetometer consists of two sensors, the OB and the IB sensor, mounted on
a spacecraft boom. The instrument provides 3 component magnetic field vector  
data measured by both sensors. In this data set only RAW data in units of ADC 
counts can be found. Additionally to the magnetic field data, HK data like    
sensor temperatures, voltages, and filter stages are supplied in RAW data     
format.

Supporting files for the Archive user include PDS descriptions, documents,    
and searchable indices. These have been organized into three directories one  
level below the root: CATALOG, DOCUMENT, INDEX

The ROSETTA project decided that the data would be archived in the PDS        
format. Consequently, the layout of this volume and the labels for each file  
conform the PDS /PSA guidelines.
