With a control station and a power unit, the antenna acts as a signal booster to transmit deployed science.
Note that this antenna is not mandatory, the science is transmitted by the control station's antenna which is a 500k class antenna, capable of being reached from the surface of the Mun even with a level 1 tracking station. Also, vessels with a probe core and a relay antenna can relay the control station's signal.
