Abstract: In this paper, a general framework for optimum configuration of command and control satellite station will be offered according to orbital parameters of satellite. Main goal for each of command and control earth stations is to increase time period of viewing satellite and also variety of number of passes while viewing hypothetical satellites. Orbit of each satellite can be determined by main indexes known as Kepler parameters including inclination, apogee and perigee. First passes of each satellite is another main subject while determining location of stations and its index is having exact location and/or TLE of satellite in the separation point of satellite from launcher. Therefore, geographical specifications of location of satellite separation are considered for locating earth station.
