PDS SPICE Archives

Missions for which NAIF has archived some or all of the SPICE data are listed in the table below. Click on aareadme in the "Archive Overview" column for a particular mission to bring up an overview of the SPICE archive volume for that mission. The aareadme files that are in HTML format (most of them) include direct links to the various descriptive documents.

Click on the link in the "Volume FTP Link" column to jump to the top of the volume -- the point from which you can browse the volume contents.

The archived data go only as far as the "Stop Time" shown in the table, which is typically three to twelve months behind "real time" for missions that are ongoing. If you need more recent data, go to the Operational Flight Project Kernels link.

To download the complete data set use the URL of the link in the "Volume FTP Link" column in wget or a similar download utility, such as FileZilla. See download help for additional details.

Some SPICE dataset collections are very large and may be impractical to download in their entirety. To download a subset of a data set covering a particular time interval, click "subset" under the "Data Set Subsetter Link" column and follow the instructions on the page that appears.

Project-specific Notes:
The subsetting service will NOT download Cassini EKs, instrument-specific CKs, and Cassini-specific PCKs. (It will provide the latest generic PCK, however.)
