The TanDEM-X mission: overview and interferometric performance

  • Sigurd Huber (a1), Marwan Younis (a1) and Gerhard Krieger (a1)

Abstract

TanDEM-X (TDX; TerraSAR-X add-on for digital elevation measurement) is an innovative spaceborne X-band earth observation mission that will be launched in June 2010. This paper gives an overview of the TDX mission concept, summarizes the basic products and illustrates the achievable performance. In more detail the effect of quantization on the interferometric performance is discussed. Finally, new imaging techniques are outlined.
