This investigation is the novel study, which is contacted along the Malaysian coastal water to implement the potential of TanDEM-X satellite data for retrieving sea surface current. In this view, the main objective of this investigation is to exam the multichannel MAP height estimator for retrieving sea surface current pattern as a function of the tidal elevation. In-deed, TanDEM-X satellite data have an inordinate prospective for modeling the sea surface parameters, for instance, sea surface current flows and the physical parameters of ocean wave spectra i.e. wavelength and significant wave height. Consequently, TanDEM-X satellite data are the expression of the satellite operation flying with the two satellites in an exactingly measured substance with a consistent baseline between 250 and 500m. In this understanding, the set of TanDEM-X satellite data are explored by using along track interferometry which is optimized by MAP algorithm. The investigation reveals that the MAP algorithm has excellent performance with the lowest RMSE of ±0.013. Additionally, the MAP algorithm can authenticate the spatial variability of coastal water from TanDEM-X satellite data. Concluding, TanDEMX data exposes a fabulous assurance for modeling the sea surface current flow with X-band.
