Gaia will also provide a comprehensive survey of Solar System objects. If compared to other large ground-based surveys, Gaia potential for discoveries of small asteroids appears to be limited by its magnitude threshold for detection. However, it can provide valuable data on the physical properties of the observed objects. If compared to LSST, Pan-STARRS or other surveys Gaia is complementary and occupies a clearly defined niche on its own.
