The paper starts with an overview about the TS-X data take command generation. The general approach of calculating particular instrument settings for each data acquisition is presented. Selected details are presented allowing a better understanding of presented results. The data take planning and commanding especially in the commissioning phase is resumed. The second part concentrates on the SAR system performance, i.e. obtained verification results are presented together with the resulting improvements in the data take commanding.
