The Ogasawara Downrange Station was established in Ogasawara, Tokyo, in 1975 as a National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA) facility. It is located in the middle of a National Park with a beautiful view and surroundings. The Station is equipped with radar (rocket telemeter antenna and precision radar antenna) to check the flight trajectories, status, and safety of rockets launched from the Tanegashima Space Center (TNSC). The data received is immediately transmitted to the TNSC via a special communication link.
