Hyperspectral Imager Suite (HISUI) is a Japanese future spaceborne hyperspectral instrument being developed by Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI) and will be launched in 2015 or later. HISUI’s operation strategic study is described in this paper. In HISUI project, Operation Mission Planning (OMP) team will make long- and short-term observation strategy of the sensor. OMP is important for HISUI especially for hyperspectral sensor, and relationship between the limitations of sensor operation and the planned observation scenarios have to be studied. Major factors of the limitations are the combinations of downlink rate, observation time (15 minutes per orbit) and the swath of the sensor (30 km). The achievements of global mapping or regional monitoring need to be simulated precisely before launch. We have prepared daily global high resolution (30 second in latitude and longitude) climate data for the simulation.
