The paper provides a critical review of the achievements in SAR interferometry from the ERS mission as well as from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission SRTM. It describes the development from the original idea of the Interferometric Cartwheel to the concept of a formation flight of identical and active SAR satellites. From the experience gained from ERS and SRTM interferometric data processing as well as from the analysis of the Cartwheel concept a list of mission requirements has been set up. The most demanding one is the autonomous configuration flight of a tight x-band constellation, where the satellites fly as close as up to 30 m with a dead-band of +/- 10 m. The guidance, navigation and control considerations come to the conclusion that such a mission is feasible.
