Parameters

This section documents the parameters recognized by this task (if any).

ParameterMand Type Default Constraints
attsourcenostringodfodf|atthk
Source of the attitude data. If this equals `odf', the environment variable SAS_ODF must be set to point to the appropriate ODF.
 
odfattsourcenostringahfahf|om
Whether to use the Attitude History File or the OM pointing history file from the ODF. This parameter is read if attsource=`odf'.
 
timesourcenostringuseruser|eventlist
If this = `user', the task reads parameters tstart, tstop (or datestrstart and datestrstop) and tstep, and constructs the sequence of attitude sample times from these numbers; if it = `eventlist', the event times from the event list supplied to parameter eventset are used.
 
usertimestylenostringtimestamptimestamp|datetimestr
This parameter is read if timesource=`user'. If `timestamp' is specified, the start and stop times are read from parameters tstart and tstop as double-precision `timestamps' (seconds since the XMM-Newton reference epoch). If usertimestyle=`datetimestr', the start and stop times are read from parameters datestrstart and datestrstop as strings.
 
tstartyesreal0.0d0 
Time stamp of the first time sample. This is read if timesource=`user' and usertimestyle=`timestamp'.
 
tstopyesreal0.0d0 
Time stamp of the last allowed time sample. This is read if timesource=`user' and usertimestyle=`timestamp'.
 
datestrstartyesstring0000-00-00T00:00:00 
Date-time string of the first time sample. This is read if timesource=`user' and usertimestyle=`datetimestr'.
 
datestrstopyesstring0000-00-00T00:00:00 
Date-time string of the last allowed time sample. This is read if timesource=`user' and usertimestyle=`datetimestr'.
 
tstepyesreal1.0$0>$tstep
Separation between successive time samples. This is read if timesource=`user'.
 
eventsetyesdataset  
Name of the event-list dataset which supplies time samples from the event times. This is read if timesource=`eventlist'.
 
pntkwdsetyesdataset  
Name of the dataset from which to read the spacecraft average pointing keywords (usually expected to be the output file of atthkgen). This parameter is read if attsource=`odf' and timesource=`eventlist'.
 
atthksetyesdataset  
The dataset (normally this would be expected to be the output files from task atthkgen) which contains samples of the spacecraft attitude. This is read if attsource=`atthk'.
 
atthkattsourcenostringahfahf|om
Whether to use the Attitude History File data or the OM pointing history data from the atthkset file. This parameter is read if attsource=`atthk'.
 
binnedattsetnodatasetbinned_att.ds 
The dataset which is to contain the binned attitude data.
 
maxdeltanoreal0.02$0<$maxdelta
A new attitude bin is started if the attitude jumps by more than this amount (in arcsec).
 
withmedianpntnobooleanyes 
Whether to use/calculate median or mean pointing for the *_PNT keywords (and, if attsource=`atthk', whether to access the mean or median atthk data).
