Description of scientific tasks and goals of the international space experiment KORONAS-PHOTON, third in the KORONAS series, is presented. Description of some instruments in the on-board scientific complex as well as in the ground-based installations for ground support of the satellite experiment is given. Preliminary results of test observations with the help of the installation for the study of high-frequency radio emission of the Earth's magnetosphere are discussed.
