PAZ ESA archive now open to users

06 Oct 2022

The PAZ ESA archive collection is now freely available for researchers worldwide through ESA's Third Party Missions (TPM) programme. The ESA archive collections consist of products requested by ESA-supported projects worldwide, and, therefore, the products are scattered and dispersed over the territory in different time windows. The datasets regularly grow as ESA continues to acquire new products.

PAZ operates in the same orbit as the twin satellites TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X, and the three work together as a high-resolution Radar constellation, featuring identical ground swaths and imaging modes. Therefore, PAZ ESA archive data can complement the TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X collections.

The products are available for download via the ESA Third Party Missions dissemination service and catalogue after free registration
