    I found the following concerning the Lacrosse dish antenna:
    The initial design for LACROSSE apparently used a deployable white gold open mesh imaging radar antenna with phased array feed. At some point the single semi circular dish was replaced by two white gold semi ellipsoidal open mesh dishes
    The solar array on more recent models may have been revised into two solar arrays shortened with the ends of the array have fold out array giving a dumb bill cross section ional appearance. The spacecraft may now use two SAR radar array dishes made of white gold meshes instead of the original one white gold mesh array dish.
