TanDEM-X operates two satellites in close formation for bistatic SAR acquisitions. Commanding and planning of scientific imaging modes is considering a complex bistatic system as well user-driven acquisition requests. This paper gives an overview of the system commanding and performance parameters of TanDEM-X experimental modes, with focus on scientific products.
