Experimental complex (EC) NEVOD includes a number of unique experimental facilities for studies of main components of cosmic rays on the Earth's surface: a large volume Cherenkov water calorimeter (CWC) (2000 m^3) with a spatial lattice of quasi-spherical modules (QSM); a vertically deployed around CWC coordinate-tracking detector DECOR (total setup area 70 m^2) with a high spatial and angular resolution for the detection of multi-particle events at large zenith angles up to horizon; a muon hodoscope URAGAN with the total setup area 46 m2 continuously registering muon flux in the range of zenith angles from 0 to 80 degrees; a system of calibration telescopes (SCT) that allows to calibrate the response of QSMs and record the electromagnetic and muon components of EAS; a prototype detector for the measurements of atmospheric neutrons PRISMA-32. The complex is used for basic research of CR flux characteristics and their interactions in the energy range 10^15 – 10^19 eV. To extend the experimental capabilities and raising the status of the installation to the Mega-Science level, nowadays new large-scale detectors: an array for the EAS registration (NEVOD-EAS), a detector of atmospheric neutrons (URAN) and a large-area coordinate-tracking detector (TREK) are being deployed around the EC NEVOD. The description of experimental capabilities of the complex and first results of simultaneous detection of various EAS components are discussed.
