NSC KIPT proposed to construct a new X-ray and soft UV source NESTOR with a 40 - 225 MeV electron storage ring in Kharkov. NESTOR is a new type radiation source on the base of Compton scattering and a storage ring. Electrons are injected in the storage ring at 100 MeV and ramped up to final energy of 225 MeV. So, using interaction angle 10 Deg and 150 Deg, the facility covers operation energy range of radiation from soft UV trough synchrotron radiation from bending magnets up to hard X-ray radiation through Compton scattering (.apprx.1 eV .apprx.1 MeV). It is supposed that stored electron beam current will be of about 200 mA. Along with use of Nd:Yag laser of 10 W av. power which was developed by High-Q laser firm and optical resonator with accumulation gain of about 1000 it allows to provide X-ray radiation flux up to 1011 phot/s. NESTOR is the cooperative facility and its development is supported by Ukrainian government and NATO SfP project #977982. It is supposed that NESTOR will be in operation by mid-2007 yr. The status of the project and main facility systems are described in the report.
