A brief overview of the results of modern measurements of the photospheric diameter of the Sun and its compression is given. It justifies the need to improve the accuracy of measurements of these parameters of the Sun, proposes a concept and block diagram of the device for measuring the angular diameter and compression of the visible solar disk from outside the Earth's atmosphere.
