The multichromatic analysis (MCA) uses interferometric pairs of SAR images processed at range subbands and explores the phase trend of each pixel as a function of the different central carrier frequencies to infer absolute optical path difference. This approach allows retrieving unambiguous height information on selected pixels, potentially solving the problem of spatial phase unwrapping, which is instead critical in the standard monochromatic processing. The method, based on concepts originally introduced by Madsen and Zebker, has been developed in previous work both theoretically and through simulations. This paper presents the first MCA experimental validation of the procedure, through application to a wideband SAR single-pass interferometric data set acquired by the AES-1 airborne sensor. An evaluation of the impact of the MCA processing parameters on the height estimation performances is obtained through a parametric analysis. The results confirm the indications derived by the theoretical analysis, demonstrating the feasibility of the MCA absolute phase measurement, provided that a sufficient bandwidth is available.
