Not covering poles

Dear all,
As shown in this image. This mainly concerns the satellite track and many of the instrumnets are in fact able to image the pole too, but not all. Cosmo-SkyMED manages to cover everything thanks to their 4-vehicle constellation. But what I wonder about is, why the track can’t be made to pass exactly inclining the poles.

That is due to orbital mechanics as it is beneficial for many polar-orbiting satellites to be placed on sun-synchronous frozen orbits. SAR-missions that can cover both polar holes achieve that by switching between left- and right-looking SAR imaging.
