make_sumfiles.in contains these 6 columns:
image name loaded into process_fits
- spacecraft time of each image
- camera number that took the image
- spacecraft number for mission
- UTC time of each image
The following sample make_sumfiles.in is from OSIRIS_REx.
This sample is in the format necessary for the OSIRIS-OREx mission. UTC time may not be needed for other missions and the spacecraft time might be in another format.
Spacecraft time is needed to use CK kernels while epoch time is needed for spk kernels. Spacecraft, UTC, and epoch time can be transformed into one another pretty easily using spice, which SPC uses. It is unclear why two types of time are included in the OSIRIS-REx make_sumfiles.in. However, the legendary Bob Gaskell probably knows why.
