This paper gives an overview of the TanDEM-X mission design. A preliminary mission concept is proposed and a reference mission scenario introduced. It is shown that this reference scenario fulfils the requirements of deriving a global DEM according to the emerging HRTI-3 standard within the three year mission time and leaves enough spare time for secondary mission goals.
