Abstract. A new muon hodoscope for investigations of the processes in heliosphere and terrestrial atmosphere by means of cosmic ray muons is described. The setup design is based on multi-layer assemblies of narrow long scintillation strips with WLS fiber readout. Features of the hodoscope design are described and results of tests of a full-scale prototype of the basic unit of the hodoscope detection system – the module – are discussed.
