This document is the assessment study report for GaiaNIR (Gaia Near Infra-Red), which was one of the proposals received in response to the 2016 Call for New Science Ideas in ESA's Science Programme. Three mission concepts were selected as a result of this call, and GaiaNIR was one of them.

The GaiaNIR proposal encompasses:

  • Enlarging the astrometric achievement of Gaia to the astronomical sources which are only visible in Near Infra-Red
  • Maintaining the accuracy of the Gaia optical reference frame
  • Improving the star parallax and proper motion accuracy by revisiting the astronomical sources a number of years after Gaia.
The report has been prepared by the ESA Concurrent Design Facility (CDF).
