SPICE (Spacecraft, Planet, Instrument, C-matrix, Events) kernels contain critical information about the geometry, pointing, and timing of NASA’s spacecrafts.

For more information about SPICE visit the home page of PDS’s Navigation and Ancillary Information Facility (NAIF).

The Ring-Moon Systems Node has generated Voyager C kernels from mission SEDR files. These C kernels are available through the Pointing Tab:

  • Pointing - C kernels and other pointing information for Voyager’s instruments.
