TerraSAR-L

TerraSAR-L [Astrium]

TerraSAR-L was a mission planned to complement the X-Band TerraSAR-X satellite with a L-Band SAR. The TerraSAR-L System was to comprise a single spacecraft carrying a large, fully polarimetric L-band SAR, and a ground segment architecture that will re-use existing facilities and technologies as much as possible.

The project did not go into the production phase.
