Abstract: A new instrument Coronal Multi-channel Polarimeter for Slovakia (CoMP-S) is in the process of designing and constructing by the team of specialists from the High Altitude Observatory, National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, USA (HAO/NCAR). It will be installed at the coronagraph at the Lomnický Štít Observatory of the Astronomical Institute of the Slovak Academy of Sciences (AISAS) at the beginning of the year 2011. We present here the technical parameters of the instrument, its observational potential and planed patrol and routine observations of the velocities and magnetic fields in the solar corona.
