Description: The Katsuura Tracking and Communication Station's facilities include four parabolic antennas, tracking and control building, electric building, and Nonozuka collimation building.
The Katsuura Tracking and Communication Station was established in Katsuura, Chiba, in February, 1968 as Katsuura radiowave tracking base of the Science and Technology Agency (STA) Space Development Headquarter, and was affiliated with the National Space Development Agency in October, 1969.
The main role of this Station is to track and control satellites. After receiving telemetry from satellites, it checks their location, altitude, and instrument functions. It also sends commands to satellites as required, in order to maintain and control them.
Besides four parabolic antennas, two 18m, one 13m, and one 10m, there are also tracking and control building, electric building, and Nonozuka collimation building.
Visitors can control one of the 18m antennas.
