TerraSAR-X/TanDEM-X Full Archive and Tasking

TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X are twin German SAR satellites created and operated in a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) between the German Aerospace Centre DLR and Airbus Defence and Space. The scientific objective of the missions is to make multi-mode and high-resolution X-band radar data available for a wide spectrum of applications in fields such as hydrology, geology, climatology, oceanography, and disaster monitoring. ESA offers access to worldwide TerraSAR-X/Tandem-X data (both archived and new acquisitions) and WorldDEM products via the TPM scheme. Read more
