This paper reports on several experiments performed by the TanDEM-X constellation that could be potentially implemented as operational modes in future SAR missions. Many of them have been already demonstrated experimentally and could be repeated during a possible next pursuit monostatic phase with TanDEM-X. The new modes include new single-look products as well as interferometric ones, some of which are included in this paper as an example of their potential performance.
