The PAZ (Spanish for “peace”) satellite, launched on 22 February 2018, is owned and operated by Hisdesat, and is based on the use of a high-resolution X-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). The satellite operates in the same orbit as its twin satellites TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X, and the three satellites work together as a constellation. The objective of the PAZ mission is to provide imagery for both civilian and security and defence requirements. ESA offers worldwide access to PAZ data (both archive and new tasking) via the TPM scheme. Read more
