The TerraSAR-X Mission and System Design

Werninghaus, Rolf and Buckreuß, Stefan (2010) The TerraSAR-X Mission and System Design. IEEE Transactions on Geoscience and Remote Sensing, 48 (2), pp. 606-614. IEEE - Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. doi: 10.1109/TGRS.2009.2031062. ISSN 0196-2892.



This paper describes the TerraSAR-X Mission Concept within the context of a public-private-partnership (PPP) agreement between the German Aerospace Center DLR and industry. It briefly describes the PPP-concept as well as the overall project organization. The paper then gives an overview of the satellite design, the corresponding Ground Segment as well as the main mission parameters. After a short introduction to the scientific and commercial exploitation scheme, the paper finally focuses on the mission accomplishments achieved so far during the ongoing mission.
