  • Fast revisit constellation can quickly obtain the state information of local or global targets, which has the advantages of continuity, and is widely used in the fields of remote sensing, network communication, meteorological observation, near Earth space environment detection. Therefore, it is of great significance to study the optimal design of the fast revisit constellation. Grid point analysis is the most commonly used method in constellation design, but its calculation is large. In this paper a constellation optimization design method based on low-density grid coverage analysis for revisiting constellation optimization design is proposed, which combines the regular polyhedron spherical partition model and the sampling point grouping scheme. This method reduces the computation by more than 80% under the premise of ensuring the accuracy of the design results. Experiments show that the multi-group constellation configuration scheme optimized by this method has good revisit characteristics, and greatly reduces the optimization design time. Moreover, compared with the statistical results of using high-density grid, the error of the optimized design results is very small.
