Aims: Aim of the study justification methods of quantitative evaluation medical unit’s capability of Armed Forces of Ukraine. Increasing the level of interoperability of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the armed forces of NATO member states.

Subject and Methods: The system of medical support of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The evaluation of the capabilities of medical units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on tactical level. The research is conduct by analyzing the normative documents of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, approved standards and procedures of NATO countries, own research. Methods of content analysis, bibliographic, statistical, as well as the method of system analysis are used.

Results: In the article the modular evaluation with use of multicriteria optimization is offered that provides reduction to one-criterion optimization with use of an integrated indicator. Each functional module evaluated separately and assigned a weighting factor (for different application scenarios). The indicators of a separate module of the medical unit are normalized to obtain an integrated indicator, which has a range of measurements from 0 to 1. The use of geometric mean will make it impossible to compensate for small indicators. Capability evaluation as a whole can be express as the average of the set of estimates of each capacity module through the weighted average geometric index.

Conclusion: The proposed method of modular assessment of the capabilities of medical units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine allows quantifying them and allows determining the degree of approximation of capabilities to the required level. Reduction to the integrated indicator allows you to compare the properties of capabilities that have different units.
