TerraSAR-X is a satellite mission for scientific and commercial applications operating a highly flexible X-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) instrument with a multitude of different operation modes. The instrument and SAR performance have been successfully verified in the commissioning phase and are monitored since start of the operational phase. This paper presents the results of the performance supervision over time, and confirms the stability of the excellent image quality delivered in the TerraSAR-X mission. It also describes the efforts to acquire images for the TerraSAR-X mission with the future TanDEM-X satellite and to preserve its excellent performance. The extended abstract shows the monitoring of representative system parameters, the full paper includes further SAR image analyses over time to show the overall stability of TerraSAR-X system performance.
