The Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) flown in February 2000 aimed to map the Earth's topography by the use of spaceborn single pass radar interferometry for the very first time. Two radar instruments carried aboard of Space Shuttle Endeavour, the German/Italian X-SAR (DLR/ASI) and the American SIR-C (NASA/JPL), imaged the Earth's surface between -57 and 60 degrees latitude. One of the most important and also challenging objectives of SRTM is to create a nearly global and homogeneous Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of unprecedented precision. At the German processing and archiving facility the SRTM X-SAR data set is processed within a two years phase using a complex software system. The paper introduces the SRTM project in a brief overview and focuses on the X-SAR data processing as well as on the product specifications and properties.
