Description: The article defines methodological approaches to selection of automotive vehicles for remotely piloted aircraft systems transportation, which are able to provide the required security and safety of transportation, upon condition of efficient use of resources. The choice of automotive vehicles is based on determining the set of indicators comprising specifics of the process of the piloted aircraft transportation, as well on evaluating their efficiency, and on a comparative analysis of efficiency of vehicles in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The speed characteristics of a vehicle, in the instant case, are determined by the duration of the transportation cycle. Security and safety transportation conditions are determined by the vehicle size and it’s carriage body equipment. Resource expenses are characterized by such indicators as: statistical index of carrying capacity usage, the vehicle performance, the transportation cycle prime cost. The estimation of the transportation cycle indicators items allows us to choose the brand of automotive vehicles, that would ensure the highest maneuverability of motor vehicles, in comparison to other brands, regarding driving from the dispositions to the battlefield destination areas, tactic positions changeover. Economic indicators comparison allows us to estimate the resources expenditures committed by one or another automotive vehicle brand while performing similar of remotely piloted aircraft systems transportation. The order of preference of one or another indicator in the emerge or forecast situations is estimated by the person, who makes the decision on the transport assistance of performing assigned tactical missions. The time minimization for maneuver performing by the remotely piloted aircraft system is considered to be the top-priority for achieving instantaneous tactic missions. The resource thrift acquires the highest priority grade upon conditions when tactical operations (battlefield missions) are planned in advance.
