This paper presents a novel approach to determine absolute heights using a single long aperture SAR acquisition. The new approach is a pure auto-focus that exploits the efficiency of the TerraSAR-XMulti-Mode SAR Processor (TMSP). This approach is much more robust to outliers rejection, presents a better accuracy and it is oriented to process a whole scene. The theory and source of errors are reviewed on this paper. Results over different real test cases are presented to show the potential of this method.
