The article describes the main problems of lightning space detector creation. This device is designed to detect lightning flashes from the board of International space station. The aim of the work is determination of key characteristics of scientific equipment complex and modeling of its work. Frame frequency and working spectral range of high-speed optical-electronic camera are proved. The problems of choosing photodetector, determination of requirements to a lens and narrow-band interferential light filter are considered. The description of high-speed algorithm of lightning flashes detection is provided. The technique of computer simulation of images and algorithm of their processing is tested and described.

Key words: remote sensing, lightning detector, ISS, high-speed camera, low earth orbit, lightning flashes detection.
