PAZ is the X-Band SAR satellite of the Spanish National Program for Earth Observation from Satellite (PNOTS). PAZ satellite was launched in February 2018 and it will operate in Stripmap, Spotlight and ScanSAR modes, using large number of configurations and possible antenna patterns, with selectable polarization and looking mode. It is necessary to develop methods of measurement and analysis of interferometric and polarimetric PAZ data that addresses the generation of quality science SAR products, for its use in geoscience and earth observation applications.
