XMM-Newton Radiation Monitor Time Correlated Files
The XMM-Newton SOC is generating sets of time correlated Radiation Monitor Data along with orbit data in FITS format. This set of data is planned to become part of the XMM-Newton Science Archive (XSA). In the meantime, the data is made available via this dedicated web page.
The Radiation Monitor data are raw (non calibrated) data gathered by the XMM-Newton EPIC Radiation Monitor (ERM) experiment. You can find a technical description of the ERM here.
What are the Radiation Monitor Time Correlated Files?For each XMM-Newton revolution there will be a a compressed tarball file (radmon_RRRR.tar.gz) containing the following information:
Available dataThe data is organized in revolution ranges (100 revs per page) that can be accessed here
In case of a revolution where no Radiation Monitor data is available or the corresponding Time Correlation (TCX) file could not be produced, there is no data pack. The revolutions for which currently no TCX is available are listed here.
In case of a revolution where no Raw Attitude file is available, the radiation Monitor data pack is available, but without this file. Revolutions for which no attitude data is available are listed here.
In case of any doubts or further questions, please, do not hesitate to contact the SOC via the XMM-Newton HelpDesk.
