The article considers basic principles of building a complex for planning and flight control of target equipment radiometric parameters for Earth remote sensing satellite hyperspectral imaging of the Resurs-P series from a unified position of system approach. The architecture of the proposed complex is presented with a brief description of its main modules: estimation of wavelength scale positions and visual field of instrument; checking of fault elements; preparation of initial data for planning session routes; estimation of temperature condition for hyperspectral equipment; calculating the coefficients of radiometric correction. An algorithm of the complex operation is considered in terms of: initial data array preparation for survey modes planning; estimation of radiometric parameters stability and temperature condition of hyperspectral equipment; checking the presence of fault elements. In the conclusion, it is noted that the complex under consideration has been successfully tested in flight-design tests of Resurs-P space system with spacecrafts No. 1–3 and was put into normal operation as a part of ground-based complex for receiving, processing and disseminating information from the space system Resurs-P.
Keywords: Earth remote sensing, hyperspectral equipment, wavelength scale, instrument field of vision, radiometric correction coefficients, radiometric parameters, calibration characteristics
