As part of the Galileo programme, the infrastructure at Redu has been expanded to host Galileo’s satellite in-orbit testing facilities and a Galileo sensor station.
The main purpose of the testing facilities is to verify the performance of the payloads on the four Galileo In-Orbit Validation (IOV) satellites. The testing involves measuring radio frequency and baseband parameters for the navigation L-band downlink and the C-band uplink.
