The Gaia Service Module with the Phased Array Antenna (PAA) integrated into the Sun-pointing face. The Antenna Support Panel – the silver area surrounding the Radiating Cone – provides the radiating surfaces needed to reject the heat generated by the PAA. The panels surrounding the antenna will be equipped with solar panels to generate power for the spacecraft.
