About the Redu Station

Redu station provides ESTRACK tracking capabilities in S- and Ka-band, and supports in-orbit testing (IOT) of telecommunication satellites. Redu supports ESA's Artemis and Integral missions as well as Proba. The site hosts multiple tracking antennas operating in a variety of frequency bands, and is located in the Ardennes region of Belgium, about 1 km from the village of Redu, in the Belgian province of Luxembourg.

Redu hosts the following antennas:

  • REDU-1: 15m-diameter dish antenna with reception and transmission in S-band, used primarily to support Integral
  • REDU-2: 13.5m-diameter dish antenna with reception and transmission in Ka-band, used primarily to support Artemis
  • REDU-3: 2.4m-diameter dish antenna with reception and transmission in S-band, used to support Proba

The terminals provide facilities for tracking, telemetry, telecommand and radiometric measurements (ranging, Doppler, meteo - except REDU-3).

The station has a frequency and timing system, a monitoring and control system and communications are enabled via the ESA Operations Network (OPSNET).
