Mars Pathfinder Radio Science Surface Operations Data

This archive contains archival raw, partially processed, and ancillary/supporting radio science data acquired during the Mars Pathfinder surface operations, that took place between July 4, 1997 and October 7, 1997. The radio observations were taken using the Pathfinder and Earth-based receiving stations of the NASA Deep Space Network (DSN), providing measurements of the range and range-rate (Doppler) between Earth and Pathfinder.
