AeroCube-6 (AC6) Dosimeter Data Release
---------------------------------------------------------------------


The AC6 Dosimeter data are approved for public release. We ask that you coordinate your study with the instrument team listed below. This coordination will ensure proper considerations for data quality and avoid duplication among related studies.

 

 

The AC6 Dosimeter Team:

Bern Blake jbernard.blake@aero.org (link sends e-mail)

Drew Turner drew.l.turner@aero.org (link sends e-mail)

Paul O'Brien paul.obrien@aero.org (link sends e-mail)

 

 

 

A README file is also included:

TOR-2016-01155_AeroCube-6_Dosimeter_Data_README_v3.0.pdf

 


The AC6 dataset is provided in 4 ASCII files each day. Survey files contain 1 Hz dosimeter data an minimal ephemeris. Coordinates file contain extended magnetic coordinates at 1 Hz. Attitude files provide detailed attitude information at 1 Hz. 10 Hz files provide the high resolution data taken in burst mode. The data dictionary indicates which quantities are in which file.
