Opening SAOCOM SLC data in SNAP

Dear SNAP users and developers,

It is possible now to test SAOCOM images in their SLC fomet in SNAP?

Reminder, SAOCOM published detected images . I roughly translated their guide in english here: SAOCOM. how to read in snap.pdf (286.7 KB)

Following the same steps, I was hoping that SNAP could be able to read them, but I have an error saying “unsupported sample format for 64 bits data”.

I imagine it is caused by the complex encoding of the data.

<RasterInfo>
  <FileName>slc-acqId0000089010-a-tna-0000000000-s1qp-hh</FileName>
  <Lines>5256</Lines>

</RasterInfo>

thanks for reading,
