TerraSAR-X is a versatile synthetic aperture radar (SAR) satellite with active phased array antenna technology and represents the backbone of the German national radar Earth observation mission. With its large variety of different SAR imaging modes and its high operational flexibility, TerraSAR-X ideally serves the scientific community and users from the industrial sector and governmental institutions. The innovative satellite system design combines the rich experience from past German and European SAR space missions like X-SAR, SRTM, ERS 1 and 2, and Envisat combined with state-of-the-art Earth observation bus technology as used, e.g., on the CHAMP and GRACE satellites.
