Image preliminary processing (pre-processing) of remote sensing satellites is considered as a vital process for the received data. The received video data is converted into an easy understandable raster images and any distortions that results during the satellite manufacturing process or through data acquisition and transmission are eliminated. This paper proposes the pre-processing algorithms that should be performed to the received data from remotely sensing satellites with Visible and Infra-Red (VIR) sensors beginning from reception of data by antenna at the Ground Data Reception Station (GDRS) until delivery of level 1A product (radiometrically corrected image). Briefly, the received data should be processed in two levels; level 0 to produce the raw image, and level 1 to produce radiometrically and geometrically corrected image.
