Abstract

The PN Gating mode allows operating all individual T/R modules under most realistic conditions with the advantage that all modules can be characterised simultaneously. For the first time ever, this innovative method is performed by inflight PN Gating measurements during the TerraSAR-X commissioning phase. In this paper, the latest results from the in-orbit calibration of TerraSAR-X after its launch in February 2007 are shown and compared to on-ground measurements of prelaunch characterisations.
