The joint TerraSAR-X / TanDEM-X ground segment
This paper recalls the essential elements of the joint TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X ground segment. It elaborates on some topics which are usually not in the primary focus from a pure SAR technical point of view, e.g. the flight formation. Both commissioning and early routine phase results from operating the joint TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X ground segment are given.
