This archive contains ground calibration data for
MESSENGER instruments EPS, FIPS, GRS, MAG, MASCS, MDIS,
MLA, NS, and XRS. The data represent results of
instrument calibrations before flight. These are saved
PDS data; that is, they do not constitute a fully
standards-compliant peer-reviewed PDS archive, but PDS
is saving the data to preserve it from being lost. Saved
data files are required to have only minimal PDS labels
This archive contains a directory for
each instrument's calibration data. Each
instrument directory contains documents in
both ASCII and PDF formats that describe the
instrument's ground calibration. Each
instrument directory has a DATA subdirectory
containing the data products.
The calibration data exist as text files,
comma-separated-value tables, fixed-length
ASCII and binary tables, and FITS images.
Each data file is described by a detached,
minimal PDS label.
