This paper analyzes the interferometric performance of the Sentinel-1 sensor, by presenting some of the many highlights of the first one and a half years of operation of the mission. The analysis has been carried out as part of the ESA-funded InSARap project. The paper will focus on persistent scatterer interferometric results and their validation, as well as on the analysis of selected events, namely, the Fogo volcano and the Gorkha Earthquake. Moreover, the applicability of SAR tomography to Sentinel-1 data is also demonstrated.
