The Gaia mission is described, focussing on those technical aspects that are necessary to understand the details of its external (absolute) flux calibration. On board of Gaia there will be two (spectro)photometers, the blue one (BP) and the red one (RP) covering the range 330-1050 nm, and the white light (G-band) imager dedicated to astrometry. Given the fact that the focal plane of Gaia will be constituted by 105 CCDs and the sources will cross the the focal plane at constant speed, at…
