The NUCLEON-2 experiment is aimed at the investigation of isotope and charge composition of medium, heavy and ultra-heavy ions (Z < 82) in the 300 MeV/N — 1 GeV/N energy range. The concept design of HICRS for the NUCLEON-2 satellite cosmic ray experiment is presented. The performed simulation confirms the isotope resolution algorithms and techniques.
