H$_2$O masers associated with the massive star formation region W49N were observed in frames of the Space-VLBI project RadioAstron. Ultra-compact structures in the masers were detected on space-ground baselines up to 9.6 Earth diameters. The flux density of ultra-compact features does not exceed a percent of the single dish flux density. Some results of the data processing for three observing sessions performed in 2014-2015 are presented. The lower limit of minimal brightness temperatures and estimates of angular sizes of the brightest features corresponding to the ultra-compact maser spots of the W49N complex are obtained.

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.
