Wavemill is an interferometric SAR system concept for an instrument intended for measuring the ocean surface currents and mapping its surface topography. The outcome of the Wavemill feasibility study promoted by ESA was very promising. The purpose of the Wavemill Proof-of-Concept Campaign is to demonstrate the feasibility of the Wavemill concept by flying an interferometric airborne SAR instrument with squinted beams. This paper gives an overview of the needed SAR and InSAR algorithms to process the data and some preliminary results of the campaign.
