We exploit the small baseline subset (SBAS) algorithm for generating deformation time-series from SAR data acquired by sensors with different characteristics but with the same illumination geometry. In particular, our approach is focused on the use of European Remote Sensing (ERS) and ENVISAT satellite data, the latter acquired by the Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar sensor on the IS2 swath. The proposed solution is oriented to investigate large-scale displacements with a relatively low spatial resolution (about 100×100 m) and implements an easy but effective combination of ERS and ENVISAT multilook interferograms which benefits of the temporal overlap between the acquisitions of the two sensors. Moreover, the algorithm does not rely on specific hypothesis on the spatial or temporal characteristics of the investigated deformations. Presented results, achieved on a synthetic aperture radar dataset relevant to the Napoli city area (Italy), confirm the validity of the approach.
