Well-identifiable reference benchmarks are important in SAR interferometry to enable linking between different measurement techniques, or to enable datum connection between the local InSAR datum and Terrestrial Reference Systems. As corner reflectors for C-band are rather large, weather sensitive, and difficult to maintain over time frames of several years, active electronic transponders are an alternative. However, low cost transponders have not been on the market until recently. Here we report results from field tests of a new type of transponder. We show that the phase precision is in the order of an equivalent displacement of 0.5 mm, and that the RCS of the transponder is equivalent to a trihedral corner reflector with a leg length of 1.03 m.
