The German SAR (synthetic aperture radar) satellites TerraSAR-X (TSX-1) and TanDEM-X (TDX-1), launched in June 2007 and June 2010 respectively, provide an unprecedented geometric accuracy. Previous studies showed an absolute pixel localization for both sensors at the centimeter level. However, recent measurements show that in range, under extraordinary good conditions, a location accuracy of even a few millimeters seems to be attainable. While on a long-term scale, we observed a slow variation of subsequent measurements; on a short-term scale, they coincided to within a few millimeters. The measurement series will be continued. The cause of the long-term variation is the subject of current investigation.
