Abstract: 
The prospects of the use of space universal transport power jet propulsion of platforms (UTPJPP) with solar batteries and electric jet propulsion are discussed. It is shown that the UTPJPP can be used for the correction of orbits and power supply of large orbital stations, as well as for the injection of space vehicles from the basic orbit into a geostationary one. Good aspects of the use of the UTPJPP are given and the ballistic efficiency of the injection of spacecrafts into a geo-stationary orbit in respect to the rocket vehicles «Zenit», «Cyclone», and «Mayak» is considered.
Keywords: geo-stationary orbit, jet propulsion, rocket vehicle «Zenit», solar batteries
