The results of Luminescence Pressure Sensor (LPS) technology applications for pressure field measurements on the surface of aerospacecraft model $\ll$ BURAN  $\gg$ are presented. Physical principles of LPS technology, an experimental technique and data reduction method are considered. A flow around model was investigated at Mach number range $0.85 \div 0.96$ and angles of attack range $8^\circ \div 16^\circ$.
