Scaglioni Stefano - 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.

European Space Operations Centre
Stefano Scaglioni is Product Assurance (PA) and Safety Manager working in the Quality Office of the ESA Human Spaceflight and Operations Directorate in ESOC, since 2001. He is leading a team of PA Engineers supporting all the satellite missions operated by ESOC and some ESA infrastructure projects.
Gaia is one of the ESA missions where Stefano is involved, in collaboration with Paolo De Meo. The PA tasks in the Gaia Mission Operations Centre (MOC) include the set up and control of the anomaly management process, the configuration management process, and the documentation management process. For this purpose, the PA representative provides and maintains PA tools to be tailored according to Gaia MOC needs. The PA representative is also responsible for the demonstration of the compliance to the Gaia MOC dependability requirements via Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, and Safety (RAMS) analyses. Finally, the PA representative supports the management of Gaia MOC risks and the collection of Gaia lessons learned.
