KLYPVE is a Russian science mission to detect ultra-high energy cosmic rays (UHECRs) above 5 1019 eV. It will be attached to the Russian MRM-1 module onboard International Space Station. The K-EUSO project is a result of the joint efforts of the JEM-EUSO collaboration to improve performance of the KLYPVE mission, by employing the technologies (a corrector Fresnel lens, the Focal surface detector, and a laser head) developed for the JEM-EUSO mission. The baseline design of KLYPVE/K-EUSO uses a 3.4m primary mirror, allowing large photon collection efficiency. Light from the mirror is focused by a 1.7m diameter, double sided Fresnel lens on the focal surface. The lens enlarges the field of view to ±14°, reduces aberrations thus improving the effective area by more than a factor 7. We will describe the details of the baseline optical system for KLYPVE/K-EUSO.
