Description: The experience of armed conflicts shows that the most important component of information provision that is being imple-mented in the leading countries of the world is the space support of the Armed Forces, and the effectiveness of space support is determined by the level of development of forces and means of space designation as part of the systems: space exploration; con-trol of outer space; communications; navigation, topogeodesic and meteorological security, etc. The need to improve the information provision of the Armed Forces with restrictions on the use of manned aircraft, includ-ing intelligence, makes use of the experience of organizing space support in the armed forces of NATO countries. But the lack of appropriate resource provision degenerates into the problem of providing space support to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The article assesses some options for using the means that it is advisable to involve all types of activities of the Armed Forces for space support. The evaluation of the capacity of funds was based on general and particular performance indicators. Based on known standards and preliminary calculations, it is possible to determine the probability of disclosure of certain ob-jects of interest, and to assess the possibility of identifying these objects. Тhe determination of the effectiveness of the formation of space support for the detection and disclosure of enemy objects is proposed as an example of determining the overall and partial performance indicators of space exploration formations. The algorithms presented in this article provide the predicted probability of detecting and disclosing objects by the presence of input data, which are defined as an example for an arbitrary virtual orbital grouping. There is a need for a separate consideration of the organization of communication with various consumers of space observation materials, as well as the study of the stability of satellite communications using VSAT technology in the conditions of the AEW.
