Abstract: In the context of the problem of radar observations of space objects (SO) using the radar, located on arbitrary latitude on the Earth's surface, we obtained formulas describing the kinematics of motion in a circular orbit with an arbitrary inclination angle with the Earth's rotation. The model is proposed, accounting the rotation of the Earth, in order to estimate correctly the total observation time SO. An indicator of the quality of synthesis, which allows to identify portions of the trajectory SO, which make the most effective radar portraying, was proposed.

Keywords: ISAR, target radar image, space object, cross-range scaling.
