Designs of high pressure xenon gamma-spectrometer with high energy resolution is considered. This device is intended for research of space gamma-radiation and space gamma-bursts. It consists of four independent gamma-detectors which are cylindrical ionization chambers with shielding grids. They are filled with high pressure xenon with density 0.5 g/cm3. Working volume of each chamber is 6000 cm3. Energy resolution of the gamma-spectrometer is 2.5% at energy 662 keV and 1.5% at energy 1170 keV. Its sensitive surface equals to 2500 cm2. It is planned to install the developed instrumentation on the scientific power platform of International Space Station.
