Generally, missions of remote sensing satellites are divided into three types: monitoring missions, recognition missions and surveillance missions. These missions need the Sun Synchronous Orbits (SSOs) or Multi-Sun Synchronous Orbits (MSSOs) in order to perform the operations. These SSOs and MSSOs have many requirements that make deciding the best type a multi-criteria decision problem. To this end, the Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) methodology is utilized to decide the orbit type in the remote sensing satellites missions. Therefore, the objective in the above methodology is to reach the orbit in the minimum amount of time and with the minimum cost (SSOs or MSSOs). The criterions are remote sensing missions, and the alternatives in the AHP methodology are the SSOs and MSSOs. In the conclusion, the results of methodology are presented and evaluated.
