Abstract

We present in this paper the work done to test the synoptic capabilities of the GNSS-R interferometric technique as a means towards sea surface altimetry estimation, which is an integrated part of the assessment of the GEROS-ISS mission. For this purpose, a new software receiver has been developed and tested: SPIR. With the lessons learned after a first flight campaign, some system modifications were performed and a second experimental campaign has been recently carried on. Initial results show interferometric waveforms that present the quality required for altimetric analysis.
