Paper Abstract

The WSO-UV project is an efficient multipurpose orbital observatory for high sensitivity imaging. The imaging instrument Field Camera Unit (FCU) onboard WSO-UV will be the first UV camera to be flown to a geosynchronous orbit. The observatory is planned to operate for at least five years and perhaps longer. WSO-UV will open new opportunities in planetary science, stellar astrophysics, extragalactic astronomy and cosmology. This paper provides an information on updated FCU instrument.
