In this paper, we propose a method based on minimum mean squared error (mmse) criterion to estimate synthetic aperture radar interferometry (InSAR) interferometric phase. In this method, the cross-correlation coefficient vector with large coregistration error is given first, and then, the cost function under the mmse criterion is used to estimate the InSAR interferometric phase. The method can auto-coregister the SAR images and reduce the interferometric phase noise simultaneously. Theoretical analysis and computer simulation results show that the method can provide an accurate estimate of the terrain interferometric phase (interferogram) even when the coregistration error reaches 1 pixel.
