The problem of optimizing the measurements of transmissions of direct solar radiation in the visible region of the spectrum on tangential paths is studied. It is shown that the accuracy with which the optically active components of the stratosphere are reconstructed can be significantly improved with the help of an efficient arrangement of the measuring channels without an increase in the volume of measurements. The possibilities of the approach proposed are demonstrated for the example of the reconstruction of NO2.
