Introduction. Advantages and disadvantages of rocket cloud modification technology are analyzed, and optimization directions are outlined.

The proposed optimization techniques are based on:

– the author’s personal long-term experience as the founder and director of research-production organization engaged in solving multiple problems of active modification of meteorological processes (Moldova, 1965–1991)

The organization, established in 1965 by the Central Aerological Observatory the (city of Dolgoprudny) from its onset became the center of research and development of rocket cloud modification technology in the USSR. The technology is aimed at prevention of hail formation, enhancing rainfall from various cloud types in different seasons, as well as dissipation of super cooled fogs, prevention of light frosts, reduction of thunderstorm activity etc.
