About the SMART-1 science archive
The SMART -1 science archive - accessible via the Planetary Science Archive (PSA) pages at http://archives.esac.esa.int/psa - contains raw and calibrated data sets from the science instruments of the SMART-1 mission, formatted and structured according to the Planetary Data System standard.
The data sets that are available (see the table below for a summary) have been calibrated and collated by the SMART-1 project, and are accompanied by extensive documentation describing data acquisition and calibration, along with supplementary material describing the instruments and their scientific objectives.

The Planetary Science Archive
The Planetary Science Archive is the official, long-term archive for data produced by ESA's planetary missions. The PSA provides reviewed and validated data products to the scientific community via a single interface and using a method independent of the instrument or mission. All of the data products adhere to the Planetary Data System (PDS) standards. As a result, the worldwide scientific community can work with a well-known standard. Once the proprietary period for the principal investigators has passed the data is prepared, reviewed and ingested into the PSA.
