Design, performance and calibration documentation
Description of the product
The SREM data files contain calibrated data for the different energy and particle species channels available in the SREM. Each data file contains 24 hours of data - from midnight to midnight (note this is not an OD) - with the date covered by the file easily identifiable through the file name.
SREM calibrated data was produced from the SREM raw data acquired during the entire mission.
Note: SREM calibrated data files where initially provided in the Common Data Format (cdf) format. This has traditionally been the preferred data format for SREM installed on board of previous ESA missions. However, as cdf is not widely used in the astrophysics community it later agreed with the provider
- Naming convention
- The files containing the SREM calibrated data will have a name of the form SREMPlanck_PACC_YYYYMMDD.fits where PACC stands for Processed ACCumulated data and YYYYMMDD is the date the data in the file was acquired.
- Each file contains three extensions named SREMPlanck_PACC_YYYYMMDD.fits-1 to SREMPlanck_PACC_YYYYMMDD.fits-3 ()
- N. Of Files
- 1500 (TBC)
For data provided in the form of fits files a table containing a description of all the header keywords should be included here. The table should follow this format
|Keyword1||this is a keyword|
|Keyword2||this is a another keyword|
Space Radiation Environment Monitor
Operation Day definition is geometric visibility driven as it runs from the start of a DTCP (satellite Acquisition Of Signal) to the start of the next DTCP. Given the different ground stations and spacecraft will takes which station for how long, the OD duration varies but it is basically once a day.
