The German TanDEM-X mission flies the two satellites TerraSAR-X (TSX) and TanDEM-X (TDX) in a close orbit formation establishing a bistatic interferometer in space. A major challenge in bistatic SAR data processing is the synchronization of the satellites’ oscillators. The paper at hand summarizes the synchronization concept, provides inorbit verification and performance figures, describes the compensation approach within the SAR processing workflow and finally quantifies the synchronization performance in terms of achieved DEM accuracy.
