TerraSAR-X is a new German radar satellite that shall be launched in mid 2006. The expected lifetime is 5 years. It carries a high frequency X-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensor that can be operated in different modes and polarisation. The Spotlight-, Stripmapand ScanSAR-modes provide high resolution SAR images for detailed analysis as well as wide swath data whenever a larger coverage is required. Imaging will be possible in single, dual and quad-polarisation. TerraSAR-X will be an… CONTINUE READING
