The possibility to get efficient topographic mapping and monitoring of large-scale motions with ScanSAR interferometry has been demonstrated with the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission and RADARSAT mission. The Environmental Satellite Advanced Synthetic Aperture Radar (ASAR) sensor has been designed to provide enhanced capabilities for interferometric applications. Different types of interferometric products can be obtained by combining the various ASAR modes as stripmap synthetic aperture radar [image mode (IM)] and ScanSAR [wide swath (WS) mode]. This letter deals with the possibility to use WS data to get either mixed-mode (IM/WS) or ScanSAR mode (WS/WS) differential interferograms. The impact of digital elevation model localization errors on IM/WS interferograms and of scan pattern synchronization on WS/WS interferograms is investigated. Experimental results are encouraging and show that ASAR ScanSAR data can be routinely used for interferometric applications in both cases.
