Abstract

A general description of the international space mission "Spectr-UF" (World Space Observatory-Ultraviolet) is given. The project is aimed to create a large space telescope to work in the UV wavelength domain (115 - 310 nm). In the Federal Space Program of Russia for 2016-2025 the launch of the project is scheduled for 2025. We implement several important improvements: updated scientific program of the project; a new design of the Field Camera Unit instrument; corrected orbit; developed a system of collecting applications etc. This paper briefly describes the current status of the mission.
