This paper deals with experiments when only some average values (over time or space intervals) can be measured. This kind of experiment can be encountered in the areas of remote sounding of atmosphere, spectrometry, sample surveys, radioactivity analysis, etc. In these cases, the optimal experimental design means that the choice of intervals of observation (sometimes referred to as "windows") and corresponding shares of totally available time (or expenses) will maximize the final experimental information.

Formalization of the problem leads to a special class of optimization problems closely related to the classical "Markov's moments" problem. This paper contains new analytical and numerical results, together with a short but illuminative survey of previous researches.
