SAR systems are recently used to generate robust and projectable information about maritime traffic, ice extent and geohazards. By utilising multiple SAR satellites dynamic information can be derived at variable temporal scales. Therefore acquisition systems and processing techniques become a key issue which is requested to work in a robust and efficient way. This paper will present generalized concepts for a monitoring approach that address unmatched or interferometric acquisitions. Its goal is to show the potential of increasing the acquisition rate but also to illustrate limitations resulting from the specific monitoring schemes and their combination. The paper will visualise practical examples derived from realized studies and projects. Finally we can conclude that an agile multi satellite and multi-mode SAR system, such as COSMO-SkyMed, is well suited to monitor to dynamic phenomena on the earth’s surface. The practicability needs to be discussed in detail case by case related to the real world requirements.
