We consider the constructions of friction modules of pin on disk type for tribometer. These friction modules are intended for experiments in outer space conditions. To study tribotechnical characteristics of materials in space, the pin on disk construction for the friction module is proposed. The construction of the friction module of a promising orbital tribometer is described and its technical characteristics are given.
