In this article the results of research to achieve a comprehensive code of remote sensing satellite conceptual design is presented. In compiling the code with considering the design philosophy of "better, faster, cheaper" has been attempted in caddition to the use of new technologies and the experiences of experts, local constraints such as national launchers limitation also be considered.The main advantage of the proposed code than conventional models, is using accurate simulation methods and newer models in the process of conceptual design of subsystems. view of the practical experience of the past to choose the best design starting point, achieve an operational plan to reduce the risk of costly changes, next steps of design has been achieved.
