The TerraSAR-X mission was launched in June 2007. After successful completion of the commissioning phase the mission entered its operational phase in January 2008. Since that time TerraSAR-X provides the scientific remote sensing community and commercial customers with high quality space borne SAR data products. The intention of this paper is to present the SAR data processing concept, the comprehensive portfolio of products reflecting the instrument’s diverse imaging capabilities together with options of processing and achieved product quality as well as the essentials of SAR processing. Furthermore it shall also provide details on how to fully exploit the precision of the TerraSAR-X products.
