This paper describes the design and performance of the TESAT Reference Laser Head, acting as the frequency reference for the ALADIN Transmit Assembly (TXA) for the ESA AEOLUS satellite. First measurements of short time frequency stability (130 kHz rms over 360 sec) and digitally controlled coarse and fine step tuning functionality will be presented.
