The "Lomonosov" satellite, with the TUS instrument on board, was launched on April 28, 2016 on solar-synchronized orbit with altitude about 500 km. The main goal of the TUS space experiment is to search the Ultra High Energy Cosmic Rays (UHECR) at E >~70 EeV by measuring the fluorescence and Cherenkov radiation of extensive air showers (EAS) in the Earth's atmosphere. The TUS instrument's design and principles of operation are briefly presented. A multi-level algorithm for the search of EAS-like events was developed and applied to the TUS data set analysis. The preliminary results of the off-line reconstruction program for data analysis, search and study of candidates for the UHECR event are described and its parameters as statistical characteristics and arrival directions are presented.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
