This data set contains the primary data that is useful for investigating the mechanical properties of the varied rock types that the rover encountered. During all phases of RAT operations (i.e., calibration, seek-scan, grinding, diagnostic or brush station), the RAT application software stores sensor values and information about the RAT machine state. RAT data products will be comprised of time-ordered data records that include motor positions, motor currents, contact switch states, temperature sensor values, bus voltage, software/algorithm states, error bit fields, etc. Data records will be written to the detailed data product at a nominal rate of 2-Hz.
