IceBridge Sigma Space Prototype L0 Raw Time-of-Flight Data, Version 1

The NASA IceBridge Sigma Space Prototype L0 Raw Time-of-Flight Data set (ILSSP0) contains time-of-flight data captured over Antarctica using the Sigma Space Photon Counting Lidar Prototype instrument. The data were collected by scientists working on the Investigating the Cryospheric Evolution of the Central Antarctic Plate (ICECAP) project, which is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) with additional support from NASA Operation IceBridge. The data are stored in binary format and are available for periodic, ongoing campaigns from 2009 to the present via FTP.
