Several current and expected future SAR satellites missions (e.g., COSMO-SkyMed (CSK), Sentinel-1A/B and Tandem- X/PAZ) are designed as constellations of SAR sensors. Relative to single satellite systems, such constellations can provide greater spatial coverage and temporal sampling, thereby enabling better control on interferometric decorrelation and lower latency data access. These improvements lead to more effective near real-time disaster monitoring, assessment and response, and a greater ability to constrain dynamically changing physical processes. Using observations from the CSK system, we highlight examples of the potential for such imaging capabilities to enable advances in Earth science, Cryosphere and infrastructure monitoring.
