Paper Abstract

The Spectrum-UV mission, a general purpose ultraviolet observatory endowed with a 170-cm aperture telescope for imaging and spectroscopy in the 912 to 3600 angstroms range, will be launched in a seven days, high elliptical orbit in the late '90s by a Proton booster. The advanced feasibility study, carried on by an international study team from the participating Countries (Canada, Germany, Italy, Russia and Ukraine) is close to completion. The focal plane instrument complement for spectroscopy are described, and in particular the high resolution Echelle spectrograph and the Rowland one.
