Pioneer Venus (PVO) magnetometer (OMAG) high resolution data acquired after the multiplexer anomaly that allowed data from only a single sensor (P-sensor) to be returned to the ground (orbits 3602-5055, 1988-10-15 to 1992-10-08).

Data Set Abstract This dataset contains full resolution magnetometer data from the Pioneer Venus Orbiter spacecraft beginning with orbit 3602 (Oct 16, 1988) and continuing until the orbiter was lost in the Venusian atmosphere (orbit 5055, Oct 7, 1992). The dataset differs from the high resolution magnetometer dataset from theprevious orbits due to an anomaly in the multiplexor that controlled the sampling of the magnetometer sensors. During orbit 3602, and for the remainder of the mission, the spacecraft downlink contained magnetometer data from only the P sensor. The P sensor is the sensor which is aligned with the spacecraft spin axis, nominally in the direction of the ecliptic normal.
