September 15-17, the PCF “Research Institute “Geodesy” held military-industrial conference “Prospects for the development of robotic systems and complexes with unmanned aerial vehicles” with a practical demonstration of the functionality of modern and advanced robotics samples. In 2014, the test of robotic system for the protection and enforcement of silo launchers of intercontinental ballistic missiles should be completed. Moreover, in the near future, for the Russian army it will be created a combat robot on the basis of armored car “Tiger”, which will be equipped with anti-missile system “Cornet”.
In addition, the Foundation for Advanced Studies supported the work on creating a basic robotic platform of universal android. This robot will be able to work in a hazardous environment, to take samples of contaminated air and soil, to investigate them, and pass the data to a distance of several kilometers. The first tests of a humanoid rescue robot are planned for the years 2015-2016.
