Paulet Pascal - Gaia
Gaia was proposed in 1993 and since then, many people have been involved in the Gaia mission, whether at ESA, at industry side or at one of the institutes involved in the Gaia data processing. The Gaia Data Processing and Analysis Consortium (DPAC) is a collaboration which consists of around 450 scientists and engineers.
The list of Gaia contributors presented here should not be considered a complete representation of the entire consortium. A more complete list of Gaia contributors that were involved in the creation of the Gaia catalogues can be obtained from the author lists of the Gaia Collaboration papers (for Gaia Data Release 1 see here, for Gaia Data Release 2 see here, for Gaia Early Data Release 3 see here). A history of contributions to the Gaia mission can be found from the acknowledgements given with each data release.

Pascal Paulet is a member of the EADS Astrium team in Toulouse in charge of the procurement of the Gaia "Video Processing Units". Each of the seven Video Processing Units performs the acquisition and the processing of the data from the seven CCD rows of the focal plane assembly, and generates the scientific telemetry. Pascal is also participating to the various system level verification activities involving these units.
His previous project experience includes Data Management Systems engineering for the International Space Station Russian Service Module, Columbus and the Automated Transfer Vehicle.
