Abstract: The World Space Observatory Ultraviolet (WSO - UV), an international mission with Russia and Spain as the main contributors, consists of a 1.7 m telescope with an imaging camera, two spectrographs in the range of 115—176 and 174—310 nm with a resolution of R = 50,000 for high resolution spectral observations and a long-slit-spectrograph for R=1,000 observations. Some of astrophysical studies require both Ultraviolet orbital observations with the WSO-UV as well as observations with ground based instrumentations in visual wavelengths. In this paper we will discuss spectroscopic instrumentations of 1-m class telescopes to be used as project ground support. We also discuss astrophysical studies that require both ground base and orbital observations.
