The Ground Segment of the TerraSAR-X mission provides the infrastructure required to command and control the satellite and the instrument, to receive user requests, to process and archive the acquired data and to deliver the image products. The TerraSAR-X Ground Segment is composed of three major elements designed and operated by DLR, - the Mission Operations Segment (MOS) provided by the German Space Operation Center (GSOC), - the Instrument Operation and Calibration Segment (IOCS) provided by the Microwaves and Radar Institute, and - the Payload Ground Segment (PGS) provided by the German Remote Sensing Data Center and the Remote Sensing Technology Institute Thus, the Ground Segment represents an interface between the satellite and both the scientific and commercial user services and the users.
