Description

This file provides a condensed listing of the record structure for the DIRBE Time-Ordered Data (TOD). Each record of TOD corresponds to a single major frame (MF) which lasts 32 seconds. A description of each data field is provided, along with the starting position in bytes and the length in bytes of that field. Fields thought to be of most interest to a user have been indicated by the notation 'KEY FIELD' in the description. Note that the DIRBE TOD was written in native VMS binary format.
