Optimization, when enabled, is an algorithm that tries to obtain a full coverage with minimum, or at least much reduced, number of swaths. Optimization follows the swath / AOI Intersection Calculation.

The Optimization constraint applies to a given Area of Interest. It allows defining optimization criteria to cover the Area.

SaVoir provides three Optimization Modes, selectable through menu Calculate/ Optimization ...

The following optimization strategies and parameters can be configured:


Example case: 

Coverage of Croatia in 15 days with 18 ICEYE satellites, using Stripmap Left and Right modes, and selecting only Descending passes.


No Optimization Optimization. Two step = OFF Optimization. Two step = ON
