Abstract. The project of the Baksan Underground Scintillation Telescope (BUST) upgrade is presented. Additional outer layers of the detectors with fine spatial resolution will be mounted around BUST. Optimal dimensions of a counter, 0.125 m × 0.125 m × 0.03 m were chosen with a simulation program. The functional diagram of BUST’s DAQ additional layers is presented. Modernization allows us to study the knee region using muon number spectrum measurements.
