Survey planning is an important function of the ground segments of all known Earth remote sensing space systems. The special software is usually developed to perform this function. Currently, the Yuzhnoye State Design Office in co-operation creates a high-resolution space system for remote sensing “Sich-2M” satellite. Special software for survey planning of the “Sich-2M” spacecraft has been developed. This software is a part of the software and hardware ground-based complex “Coordination Plan”. We describe briefly functions, structure, and special software interface. The basic algorithm for planning a stereoscopic survey is considered in detail. The survey of a piece of the Earth’s surface is performed from one turn by evading the spacecraft back and forth. The developed software was tested, debugged, and documented. Currently, the application is ready for functional tests. The develop ed algorithms can be used for planning surveys with other types of Earth remote sensing spacecraft.
