We give a review of criteria for the development of an active orbital spacecraft with consideration for the analysis of aspects of the application of the propulsion system running on hydrogen peroxide and the possibility of its return to the Earth. We propose a concept of creating a modern type of the spacecraft which is maneuvering in orbit and returning unmanned orbiter in the of the remote sensing satellite. Our investigation reflects some results of optimizing the design of the launch vehicle for the orbiter.
