In spite of the rapid development of space radars for remote sensing of the Earth, the multispectral observation of the Earth in visible band (including IR region) is now the main method to get the necessary data. The optoelectronic scanners are the main type of sensors, which are usually placed in sun-sinchronous orbits at 600 to 900 km altitude. According to modern concepts, a remote sensing space system must provide receiving data for many applications simultaneously. The same satellite data serve as informational base for various thematic directions, and, since space-based sensing requires significant expenditures, the functional effectiveness of the remote sensing instruments is largely determined by its multipurpose character.
