Inside Look Into Russian Robotics

An inside look into Russian robotics will reveal a new ground-based unmanned system known as the Marker combat robot platform. This advanced system is capable of operating autonomously at distances of up to 10 km from its operator.

The Ukrainian security crisis has shown the importance of unmanned systems in modern warfare. Sputnik sat down with the director of one of Russia’s most ambitious robotics firms to learn more about the challenges and opportunities the country’s robotics pioneers face in designing and building robots for both military and civilian applications.

NATO has deployed some of its most advanced unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) and anti-drone defense systems against Russia in Ukraine, with some Western media openly labeling the conflict a “testing ground” for new weapons, including drones. Russia, which initially lagged behind the Western alliance in military UAV technology, quickly caught up over the past year, ramping up the production of kamikaze drone designs, plus long-range reconnaissance UAVs which British military intelligence recently credited with the success of Russia’s deep missile strike campaigns against Ukrainian military infrastructure.

Marker Unmanned Combat Robots

Recent weeks have seen a flurry of reports in Russian media on a new ground-based unmanned system – the Marker combat robot platform. Capable of working autonomously at distances up to 10 km from its operator, the three-ton robotic complex can be equipped with a range of weaponry, from deadly Kornet Leopard 2-killing anti-tank missiles to swarms of BAS-80 kamikaze and target designation drones – which can fly up to 30 km from their host platform. Versions of the Marker with a 7.62 mm machinegun and AGS-17 and AGS-30 grenade launchers are also being tested.

Markers feature a modular multispectral vision system, with data reportedly processed using neural network algorithms. Russian forces are expected to be trained to use these ground-based combat drones in the near future.

Russian developers are also working on another ground-based unmanned vehicle – a remote-controlled truck for use on the front lines to deliver ammunition and supplies, and to evacuate the wounded. Testing of a prototype of the system is underway.

According to the official Xinhua News Agency, China is drilling a 32,808-feet-deep hole into the Earth’s crust, which is set to be China’s deepest borehole ever.
