There are developed principles of triangulation selenodesy network design based on passive radio reflectors and active tranceivers. Parameter assessment is done for selenodesy satellite designed for measuring of the orbit altitude and the distance to selenodesy station using active and passive methods, as well as for communication with ground station. Variants of active and passive selenodesy station design were selected and station mass was estimated. Number of selenodesy stations to be simultaneously injected into lunar orbit by selenodesy satellite are defined, and soft landing on the lunar surface are done.
