Abstract. Methods and physicotechnical facilities for examination, calibration and metrological testing of the main power spectral characteristics (total spectral sensitivity, scattered stray radiation, dynamic range) of the vehicle-borne ozone UV spectrometers in the spectral range 250-350 nm are considered.
Keywords: spectrometer, space ozonometry, power spectral sensitivity, metrological workbench, standard UV source.
