During the development of the PAZ mission, Hisdesat signed an agreement with Airbus Defence and Space to form a constellation between the PAZ, TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X satellites.
This constellation allows for highly accurate radar data to be provided and coordination of acquisition between the satellites. Inteferogrammes can also be created based on the constellation's data, as the satellites together can observe the same area with a revisit time of no more than seven days.
