We present a soft and hardware complex for the determination of the orientation of a space vehicle. The complex was developed by the Hartron-CONSAT scientific and manufacturing company (Zaporozhye) and is targeted for using in the National Center of Space Facilities Control and Test for works with the Sich-IM space vehicle. The main tasks of the complex are listed and its functional structure is described. Algorithms for the determination of orientation are considered.
