Abstract: 
Models for the determination of the technical and economical characteristics of systems of commercial launch vehicles through the net income criterion are proposed. Reliability is used as a parameter relating the income and cost with technical characteristics. The possibility to validate the launch cost with allowance made for competitiveness is examined. It is assessed taking into account priorities of a decision-making person.
Keywords: commercial launch vehicles, efficiency criterion, social sciences
