TanDEM-X, TerraSAR-X add-on for Digital Elevation Measurement, is a space borne Earth remote sensing mission with the goal of generating a global Digital Elevation Model with an unprecedented accuracy, corresponding to the HRTI-3 specifications. TanDEM-X will orbit in a special HELIX formation, with the fully compatible TerraSAR-X satellite in order to collect interferometric SAR data. It is planned to image the Earth's surface twice with different baselines. Presented in this paper is an optimization strategy, with the objective of a quasi-homogeneous height accuracy, which meets the HRTI-3 standard. The optimization has a major impact on the data acquisition plan.
