Deletion of LROC CDR Products

August 20, 2013

Important change to the LROC PDS archive -- effective immediately. New regulations from the Consolidation and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2013 (Public Law 113-6, Section 516) regarding Information Technology result in new lengthy purchase reviews for all NASA IT acquisitions. Due to these new reviews the LROC team has not yet been able to acquire the annual increase in disk storage required to sustain LROC operations and the full LROC PDS archive. To insure continued operations and data processing of EDR (raw image data) and RDR (maps and topography) products, the LROC Team will be deleting existing CDRs (Calibrated Data Record) products from the PDS repository.
