The active phase of the international orbital space mission RESONANCE, with the participation of 12 countries, is planned to begin in 2014—2016. Ukrainian scientists are involved in the mission from the preparation phase. They develop theoretical models of phenomena in magnetospheric plasma and in radiation belts, elaborate models of magnetosphereionosphere interactions and of MHD wave generation mechanisms. Some procedures for space and ground-based data interpretation and fusion are improved. On-board magnetometers for the mission satellites are developed at the LC SRI of the NASU and SSAU. We consider the above-mentioned points and determine some problems to be solved during the mission.
