The space experiment «The investigation of materials perspective for space engineering on friction and wearing in open space and ground laboratories (the code is SE «Material-Friction») was adopted for realization among the first five experiments at the stage of development of the Russian Segment of International Space Station. At present the participation of some Russian, Ukrainian, and Belorussian organizations is scheduled for preparation of the experiment. We describe the state of the work which is carried out by Ukrainian organizations for the preparation of scientific instrumentation for SE «Material – Friction» and for the elaboration of one of the main groups of the materials destined for investigations in the frameworks this experiment, namely, antifriction materials with elements of self-organizing.
