Abstract: The space TUS detector of UV fluorescence light radiated by EAS of Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays (UHECR) is under preparation for the launch in 2009- 2010. The TUS instrument will have ~2 sq. m. mirror - concentrator area and 256 PMT pixels in the photo receiver at the mirror focal surface. The TUS mission is now planned for operation at the Small Space Apparatus separated from the main Foton-4 satellite launched by SCB \u201cProgress\u201d. The \u201cUniversitetsky- Tatiana\u201d satellite data on the night atmosphere UV glow helps to organize the trigger system effectively separating EAS events from the background atmospheric events. The TUS detector will be used not only for UHECR study bur also for observation of other atmospheric phenomena of UV radiation.
