The NUCLEON satellite experiment is designed to investigate directly, above the atmosphere, the energy spectra of cosmic-ray nuclei and the chemical composition (Z= 1 − 30) at energy range 100 GeV– 1000 TeV. The effective geometric factor is more than 0.2 m2sr for nuclei and 0.06 m2sr for electrons. The planned exposition time is more than 5 years.
