Description: The article considers the existing approaches to evaluation the effectiveness to apply divisions armed with unmanned air-craft complexes. Based on the analysis of the conditions of the antiterrorist operation in the east of Ukraine, it was proposed to improve the methodology for evaluating the effectiveness to using divisions of unmanned aircraft complexes with influence of the enemy not only directly on unmanned vehicles during fulfillment their flying missions, but also on units of unmanned aircraft complexes in their preparation for combat application, namely, at the stage of appointment and occupation of positional areas (reconnaissance and percussion actions of enemy fire weapons, mining of roads and terrain sections, actions of diversion-reconnaissance groups, etc.). In order to reduce possible errors, such as subjectivity and time to prepare the unmanned aircraft complexes to using, it is proposed to use the geographic information systems database, complementing it with additional infor-mation layers of the tactical situation. First of all, this refers to the data that characterize areas of the terrain and sections of roads with indicators of the likelihood of shelling, detonation of mines, ambush, the presence of a hostile population, etc. Deter-mining the values of these indicators in order to use them in geographic information systems is subject to further research. The practical implementation of the proposed improved methodology based on the use of these geo-information systems in an auto-mated information system for making decision will ensure the necessary efficiency of the performing tasks by unmanned aircraft complex units.
