Data Level

Brief Description

Nominal Delivery Schedule

Raw

Raw telemetry data as received at the ground receiving station

 

L0

Binary CCSDS packets (as produced by the corresponding instrument; unpacked metadata

  Within 30 minutes of telemetry arriving at the SOC.

L1A

Extracted telemetry items; no calibrations or corrections applied; B and Vsc to all investigations  

1. L1A based on Survey data for SITL support: within 60 minutes of telemetry arriving at the SOC.  2. For burst data, within 24 hours of the downlink (and arrival at the SOC) of each complete burst segment.

L1B

Extracted telemetry data to which instrument-level provisional calibrations have been applied; simple moments, spectral indices  

1. L1B based on Survey data for SITL support: within 60 minutes of telemetry arriving at the SOC.  2. For burst data, within 24 hours of the downlink (and arrival at the SOC) of each complete burst segment.

Quicklook

Scientific data products that are generated using simplified science processing algorithms, e.g. with provisional calibrations.  

1. QL based on Survey data for SITL support: within 60 minutes of telemetry arriving at the SOC.  2. If there's a Burst-based QL, that will be available within 24 hours of the downlink (and arrival at the SOC) of each complete burst segment.

L2A

"Instrument-level" research-grade scientific data product, best calibrations to shorter-term delivery date

 

L2B

 "Instrument-level" research-grade scientific data products, definitive products
 

available to the general research community within 35 days of telemetry downlink

L3

"Spacecraft- and Mission-level" [research-grade] products; resampled spatially and/or temporally and combined with measurements from other MMS instruments to produce a merged data set.  A subset of the "mission-level" L3 products are provided only for designated events.
