TerraSAR-X, launched on June 15th, 2007 and its identically constructed twin satellite TanDEM-X, launched on June 21st, 2010 supply high-quality radar data in order to serve two mission goals: Scientific observation of the Earth and provision of remote sensing data for the commercial market (TerraSAR-X mission) and the generation of a global digital elevation model (DEM) of the Earth’s surface (TanDEM-X mission). The status of both, TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X mission and the status of the space and ground segment activities will be presented in this paper.
