Data Description

    OSTM/Jason-2 Telemetry Data, 2008 to 2019 - This collection contains the Ocean Surface Topography Mission (OSTM)/Jason-2 Telemetry data. The dataset consists of raw Level-0 telemetry data from the OSTM/Jason-2 spacecraft. There are three datatypes available: Housekeeping Telemetry - Recorded (HKTM-R) is stored on the spacecraft for later downlink; Payload Telemetry 1 (PLTM-1) is the payload science data from the core-mission payloads: Poseidon-3, DORIS, AMR, and GPSP; and Payload Telemetry 2 (PLTM-2) is the payload science data from the passenger mission of opportunity payloads: CARMEN-2, L2T2 and LPT. They are available as CCSDS packet files. All telemetry data are restricted to the project team, per the mission's 4-partner Memorandum of Understanding. Other data/products associated with OSTM/Jason-2 are also available, including Level-2 Geophysical Data Records (GDR), ancillary and auxiliary data files used to generate Level-2 products, quality reports from the near real-time altimetry validation system (NRTAVS) and orbit information of OSTM/Jason-2 satellite.
