The German radar satellite TerraSAR-X was launched in June 2007 [1] and is currently ending its commissioning phase. We anticipate quite different interferometric application scenarios compared to ERS- 1/2 and ASAR due to the X-band frequency, the short orbital repeat cycles of 11 days, the high range resolution and the spotlight mode of this sensor. During the commissioning phase we have scheduled a number of acquisitions over selected test sites with different characteristics to get an early quick look of TerraSAR-X's interferometric capabilities and to assess the phase quality of the sensor and DLR’s processor system [2]. Our first results are quite encouraging and the technical parameters of the system are as specified. Many spectacular image details let us expect that the high resolution will demand a different view on SAR interferometry and allow new applications in urban environments. In our paper we show interferograms and images of different test sites, coherence measurements and a first assessment of the interferometric properties. We will give hints to future scientific users on data selection and data processing. The results are of high relevance for the TanDEM-X mission scheduled for 2009, when a second compatible SAR-sensor will be launched for a joint 3 year bistatic interferometric formation flight.
