Abstract: We present here the new imaging instrument onboard the WSO—UV (World Space Observatory - Ultraviolet) project for observations in the UV (115—310 nm) spectral range. We describe the key scientific drivers of the instrument and Ground based instrumentation of the 1-m class telescopes to support space UV observations. The World Space Observatory—Ultraviolet is a Russian-Spanish space mission born as a response to the growing up demand for UV facilities by the astronomical community. It is the only 2-meter class on—orbit telescope in the after HST epoch fully devoted to UV observations.
