Abstract

TanDEM-X is an innovative spaceborne X-band SAR mission designed to derive a digital elevation model (DEM) of the Earth’s land surface with an unprecedented relative vertical accuracy of 2m at a 12m posting. The global DEM is derived from interferometric SAR acquisitions performed by two radar satellites flying in close orbit formation, with adjustable baselines in cross- and in along-track directions. This paper provides an overview of the present mission status in terms of acquisition strategy and a quality summary of the currently available parts of the TanDEM-X global DEM in terms of absolute and relative height accuracy
