SPICE Documents

NOTE: The NEAR SPICE archive was originally structured inconveniently as nine data sets divided by mission phase. For ease of use, these nine data sets were combined into a single data set by Boris Semenov of NAIF, and the combined NEAR SPICE data set was reviewed internally by SBN. The combined data set was released by NAIF in February 2013 and linked on the SBN NEAR archive site.

The original nine data sets, which are now superseded by the combined data set, are accessible here.
