Disturbances in the ionosphere related to seismic phenomena are discussed, special attention being paid to earthquake precursors. The necessity to study these precursors is shown, and the ionospheric parameters which might be used for short-term earthquake predictions in the global system of seismic activity prediction are identified. Main parameters of the space vehicle and scientific equipment of the international "Poperedzhennya" project are presented. The project is developed within the framework of the stat e space program of Ukraine
