Bundeswehr Acquires TanDEM-X Global Elevation Model

Nov 24, 2015 -- Airbus Defence and Space and the German Ministry of Defence have signed a contract for the utilisation of TanDEM-X mission data, to update the Digital Elevation Model (DEM) of the Bundeswehr. The agreement includes both licences for the utilisation of the global elevation data set covering the 150 Mio km² of the Earth’s landmass, and support services for data-management and data-editing, helping to access, edit, store and disseminate the impressive volume of data. Additional support and training will also be provided under the agreement, so users can reap the full benefits of this unique and homogenous global dataset.

The TanDEM-X Digital Elevation Model was acquired by the TanDEM-X Mission realised as a Public Private Partnership (PPP) between Airbus Defence and Space and the German Aerospace Centre (DLR). It provides the first global, consistent, single-source and high-precision Digital Elevation Model, establishing a new standard for global elevation. Airbus Defence and Space holds the exclusive commercial rights for these data which are marketed under the name of WorldDEM and has developed a dedicated software tool for the adaptation of the elevation data to the needs of military and commercial users worldwide.

“We are proud of the trust shown by the German Ministry of Defence, which now becomes the first user of the global information provided through WorldDEM” says Evert Dudok, Executive Vice President of Communications, Intelligence and Security (CIS) Business Line at Airbus Defence and Space.

The 3D nature of the data provides an ideal visualisation tool indispensable for surveillance, reconnaissance and mission planning. The TanDEM-X Digital Elevation Model facilitates the interpretation of landscapes with exceptional detail, which is essential for military engineering projects and operational planning incl. mapping of obstacles, line of sight estimation and flight path/possible landing site planning.
