FREND products present in the Planetary Science Archive (PSA) come from two different sources: calibrated products are generated by FREND instrument team, all other products are generated at the Science Operations Centre at ESAC (European Space Astronomy Center). Further details can be found in the EAICD (ftp://psa.esac.esa.int/pub/mirror/ExoMars2016/em16_tgo_frd/document/EAICD/).
Note that the PSA stores all versions, so it's possible to retrieve e.g. version 1 of the raw products. It is advisable however to always use the latest version available.
FREND filenames follow the convention:
Raw data as read from the instrument. Consists of housekeeping telemetry (engineering data), FREND Neutron Science data (counts in detectors), FREND Dosimeter Science data (radiation environment measurements). All 3 types of data are time series. This data product is produced automatically by ESAC.
Only Housekeeping telemetry is processed to this level – all engineering units converted to physical units (temperatures, voltages, instrument time etc).
This is the last data level for FREND Housekeeping.
For all 2 science types of data defined above: all engineering units converted to physical units (temperatures, voltages, instrument time etc). Instrument engineering effects are removed from scientific data (temperature drifts, detector on/off efficiency curves, effects based on SC altitude corrected etc). These are time series.
See the EAICD for more details.
|PDS is changing its LID convention for instruments. This will require a change from|
Coordination is required to make this update as it has an impact on ingestion and the PSA database. Coordination between all missions and instruments is required.

|The lid for the EAICD is incorrect and needs to be rectified with the lid contained in the products||1.x||In analysis|
|ExoMars namespace and instrument contexts are not yet registered in the PDS system, therefore the validator by default will not work. Workarounds are adding the missing items in file validate-1.23.1/resources/registered_context_products.json or running the validator skipping the check on context (--skip-context-validation)||-||-|
|The lids of calibrated products are currently under revision and will be changed to respect the format |

|1.x, 2.x||2020-04-06||DPS-3.8||Not Applicable|
|For older Raw products, the URLs pointing to PDS and PSA dictionaries are http instead of https. This has been corrected recently and newer products reflect the change. Older products will be aligned in the next bulk reprocessing. Note that for FREND calibrated products the URL for the PDS schematron still points to http instead of https. This will be corrected for future deliveries.||1.x, 2.x||2020-01-30||DPS-3.4||Not Applicable|
