TerraSAR-X / TanDEM-X SAR

TerraSAR-X/TanDEM-X StripMap (basic products, interferometry and maritime pack)


TerraSAR-X/TanDEM-X Image Products can be acquired in 6 image modes with flexible resolutions (from 0.25m to 40m) and scene sizes. Thanks to different polarimetric combinations and processing levels the delivered imagery can be tailored specifically to meet the requirements of the application.

The StripMap main characteristics are summarised in the following table:
