Terrain correction using GPT without internet connection

I apologise if my question is very simple.

I need to apply terrain correction on some SAR images, using SRTM 1sec HGT as DEM. However, the computer that I will use for pre-processing don’t have internet access. Can anything help me?

PS: I will use the gpt by command line. I will not use SNAP with graphical interface.

you can download a DEM as long as you have internet connection (or transfer a DEM file from another computer that covers your area) and then select “external DEM” as a source for the Terrain Correction module.

Just make sure that your DEM is projected in WGS84 for Terrain Correction, regardless of the chosen output projection.

You can download the SRTM 1 HGT tiles (supposedly on an internet connected machine) and copy them in the directory ~/.snap/auxdata/dem/SRTM 1Sec HGT on the machine that processes the SAR imagery. Make sure you have ALL tiles that cover your frames plus a buffer around it.

You can use wget to pick up the tiles:
