This data set contains magnetic-field data acquired during the cruise and tour phases of the Cassini mission to Saturn. The data set begins with data collected on 16 August (day 228), 1999 and ends on 17 November (day 321), 2005 when the instrument failed. On 16 August, 1999 two days before the spacecraft commenced Earth swingby, the magnetometer boom was unfurled into its extended position; a configuration it maintained for the remainder of the mission. Magnetic-field data acquired prior to boom deployment are limited and are significantly affected by spacecraft noise. These data are of no scientific value and, consequently, do not form part of this data set.
