LRO: Radio Science (RS)

June 13, 2014. LRO Release 18 does not include any new Radio Science data.

This archive contains a collection of LRO Radio Science (RS) data and documentation generated by various elements of the DSN, the LRO Project, the Radio Science Team (RST), and others. Radio Science data consist of tracking data and secondary files such as weather, laser ranging, and small forces data that are used to analyze the primary data. The Radio Science Team is a subunit of the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA) team.
