The remote sensing satellite Sich-2 is planned to be placed in the circular solar-synchronous orbit with the altitude of 650 km and inclination of 98° in late 2008. The satellite payload includes the instrumentation set for diagnostics of neutral, plasma and field components of the upper atmosphere. The set «Potential» includes the sensors DN1, DN2 for the detection of neutral particles, a Langmuir probe, the EZ sensor of electric potential, flux-gate magnetometer FZM and data acquisition system. We describe the main scientific purposes of the project.
