About the author

Ralph Kahle

After obtaining an aerospace engineering degree from the Technical University of Dresden, Ralph Kahle conducted research as a doctoral student at the DLR Institute of Planetary Research in Berlin on the areas of exposure to near-Earth asteroids and comets, as well as the avoidance of collisions.

Since 2004, he has been a researcher at the German Space Operations Center (GSOC) at DLR Oberpfaffenhofen. He works on flight dynamics systems for satellite missions for communications and Earth observation as well as robotic missions such as the on-orbit servicing mission DEOS.

Ralph Kahle is the flight dynamics engineer for the TerraSAR-X / TanDEM-X Mission. His responsibilities include precise orbit and attitude determination for the satellites, measuring their position relative to one another with millimetric accuracy, the generation of auxiliary products for radar processing, and control of the satellite formation.

DLR Webcast: Interview with Marwan Younis at IGARSS 2012

We are still here at IGARSS, giving you more information about 'Remote Sensing for a Dynamic Earth'. We spoke with Marwan Younis, who took some time from an incredibly tight schedule to answer some questions regarding TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X, as well as Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) technologies. read more
