Paper Abstract

Recent advantages in the areas of phase history processing, interferometric synthetic aperture radar processing algorithms, and the use of photogrammetric techniques have made it possible to extract extremely accurate DEM generation from Synthetic Aperture Radar images. Recent improvements by the authors in the phase unwrapping and interferogram conditioning steps are described which make it possible to obtain good elevation accuracy from noisy interferograms resulting from temporal decorrelation due to foliage or extreme terrain. Results are shown of data reductions from separate passes of the ERS-1,/2 Tandem System over Ft. Irwin, California, and Aschaffenburg, Germany.
