The use of vector diffractive integrals for the radio holographic remote sensing of the atmosphere and terrestrial surface is discussed. These integral are exact relationship connecting the electromagnetic fields. They allow one to restore the radio image of the atmosphere or Earth surface in the investigated regions using a radio hologram registered in space by a small instrument installed on the low Earth orbit satellite. The results show that a connection between the vector diffractive integrals and scalar diffractive integral, which is applied for the GPS occulation investigation of Earth's atmosphere under an assumption of the spherical symmetry.
