One of major properties of territories, designated for construction of aerospace test plots is homogeneity. In order to control the property of test plots homogeneity the statistic of Getis is widely used as its local indicator. If pixels on the object and its neighbors have similar high values the Getis statistics obtain a high value and vice versa a low one. In the article the process of reception the radars’ signal in the plane-parallel model of meteorological object is considered. The surface of the test plot may be taken as such a model. The condition of implementing a side viewing radar for obtaining the remote sensing data on rectangular grid for control of test plot on homogeneity using the Getis statistics is determined. It is shown that by selection of appropriate angle of slope the information from the test plot can be received by equal steps. In this case the homogeneity property of test plots are to be determined by help of Getis statistics on the basis of remote sensing data obtained on rectangular grid. The possibility for utilization of side viewing radars for obtaining the remote sensing data from rectangular grid at the test plot surface for further application of Getis statistics is researched.
