    "Lobaev" presented robot-sniper for urban combat

    https://defence.ru/editors-choice/lobaev-predstavil-robota-snaipera-dlya-gorodskogo-boya/


    At the exhibition "INTERPOLITEX-2016", the company Lobaev Arms for the first time presented to the public light tactical Minirex robot designed for sniping in urban combat.

    The Russian company Lobaev Arms, specializing in the design and manufacture of high-precision sniper rifles, have also developed a robotic sniper, which he presented at the XX International exhibition of means for provision of state security "INTERPOLITEX — 2016".

    As the representative of the company Defence.ru, highly mobile light tactical complex Minirex able to climb ladders and firing from the window openings. It is specially designed under conditions of urban warfare and counter-terrorism operations.




    The robot is designed for special units of law enforcement agencies in order to contrayerva and sniper fire, safe for the personnel.

    The complex itself weighs only 35 pounds (plus 10 pounds — remote control and spare batteries) and can manually be transferred by the calculation of two people. One of them acts as operator-driver, second — hand. These functions specifically divided between two people, to reduce the load and increase the efficiency of target detection.

    In anticipation of the goal, the robot can spend up to 30 hours, then he will need to replace the battery.



    Special small device 7.62 under the intermediate cartridge semi-leads the fire team operator-arrow watching the target through the 24-fold optical zoom.

    Powered "rifle" of the robot using standard shop machine "Kalashnikov", or from 60-charging drum shop. Effective range of fire is 400 metres away.

    Interesting article in Southfront regarding Russian Army drone developments. Of particular interest is this:

    The most ambitious initiatives include a robotic version of the BMP-3 infantry fighting vehicle named Udar, and the remote control feature built into the Armata family T-14 tanks which enables individual T-14s to be controlled by other T-14s through the provision of high-volume datalinks which give complete access to the sensors, weapons, and controls of the vehicle being controlled.

    Taking this one step further, it's plausible that a dedicated drone-control Armata platform could be developed with exceptional protection and surviveability which could loiter behind the battleline in concealed position and control a number of active combat vehicles. After all, if a T-14 can be operated by crew members in the armoured capsule, they could do the same job remotely in a C&C vehicle. If successful, there is no reason why similar RC tech cannot be applied to the better quality vehicles in Russia's reserve tank forces, assuming such is found to be cost effective.

    In the armata thread it mentions that each tank vehicle will have its own UAV that operates from a tether and can fly up to 100m in height... such a powerful datalink between vehicles means data from one UAV could be shared between the whole unit of vehicles... which should make the new fire and forget tank launched missiles something very potent.

    The UAVs are supposed to sport thermal sights and radar, so popping up and detecting enemy vehicles and marking them on a map and then passing that map to all the vehicles in the unit and up to HQ should make firing at targets from behind a low hill or some buildings or even some trees very interesting...

    Developer of "Fedor" expects to see the robots after the Victory Parade 2021

    Bulk samples of the Russian robot "Fedor" can be demonstrated on Victory Parade on Red Square in five years, said the general director of the NGO "humanoid machines" (robot developer) Alexander Permyakov.

    He said that "Fedor" is not a robot military use, and therefore will not be able to enter the ranks of military, but it can enter into the column EMERCOM of Russia. In addition, he said Permyakov, anthropomorphic robots format is not the most efficient for military purposes.



    "If we talk about the front column of Emergency Situations, the parade" Fedor "need to demonstrate it's advanced technology, which has a very small number of countries, I think that after 2021 it will be possible to wait for the robots in the parade." - Said General Director of "android technology "in an interview with Tass.

    "Fedor" was created by "humanoid machines" and the Foundation for Advanced Studies on the technical task of the Russian Emergencies Ministry. Initially, the robot was known under the code name "Avatar", but he recently got his own name - FEDOR (Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research, final experimental demonstration research facility). In addition to the project "Rescue" in the interest of the Emergencies Ministry, the robot will be able to perform other tasks. So, in 2021 he had become the sole occupant of the new spacecraft "Federation" at the time of its first flight.

    Nerekhta robotic system to be added to Russian special forces’ inventory

    Russian advanced robotic system Nerekhta will be accepted for service by Russian special forces and scouts, according to the Izvestia daily.


    The Nerekhta advanced robotic system

    It will be able to destroy heavy armor and fortifications all by itself by driving up close and personal and detonating itself. The mini-robot developed and made by the Degtyaryov Plant in the town of Kovrov features high maneuverability and low observability - it can sneak up on the enemy utterly silently.

    The Nerekhta has been put on the list of promising robotic systems earmarked for entering service with the Russian Armed Forces, a Defense Ministry official close to the subject told the Izvestia newspaper. If the platform proves itself in the trials, it will enter the inventories of the reconnaissance units and special forces.

    According to Degtyaryov Deputy Chief Designer for Robotics Dmitry Fufayev, the Nerekhta is undergoing its in-house tests.

    "The light tracked platform has been used as a mobile target from the outset, but at the military’s request we have tailored it to carry radio-controlled explosive devices," Fufayev explained. "The robot is in the in-house trials, and we continue to improve it."

    The Nerekhta is based on a light chassis with rubber tracks. It looks like a mini-tank, with the turret replaced by a container stuffed with high explosives. The robot is clad in armor protecting it and the high explosives against small-arms fire and fragments.

    Weighing 300 kg and measuring just above 1 m long, the robot can noiselessly haul several hundred kilograms of high explosives at a speed of 11 km/h, propelled by its electric motor.

    The operating principle of the robot’s guidance system is simple enough. Prior to a battle, the battlefield map and the grids of the targets subject to elimination are downloaded in its memory. In battle, commandos only need to push a button on their control console to select a pre-set target. After receiving the radio command, the Nerekhta will move to the target on its own and destroy it.


    The Nerekhta advanced robotic system

    According to Dmitry Fufayev, the capability was showed during a restricted-access demonstration at the Army 2016 International Military-Technical Forum.

    "In the course of a complex vignette, scouts were riding quadbikes to pinpoint the notional enemy. Nerekhta robotized systems were being used to provide coverage for them," Dmitry Fufayev said. "During the demonstration, each of the platforms used eliminated a simulated enemy armored object by self-detonation. We are going to fit the platform with a manipulator that will make it reusable. The robot will be able to drop the explosive device near the target and return to base. We also will increase the robot’s speed for this purpose."

    According to expert Alexei Khlopotov, a robot exploding on impact with an enemy combat vehicle was developed as far back as the Second World War.

    "Suffice it to say that German self-propelled mine Goliath was used on all fronts in WWII," Alexei Khlopotov noted. "It was a remotely controlled tracked minitank carrying 100 kg of high explosives to destroy tanks, bunched-up manpower and buildings."

    At present, the most promising foreign kamikaze robots are the Israeli-made Rambot and South Korean-developed iRobot FirstLook. They are rather miniature vehicles popular with cops and tailored to deal with terrorists and criminals indoors.

    "Essentially, the foreign kamikaze robots are nothing more than mobile radio-controlled hand grenades," Khlopotov explained. "They are simply thrown into a window and then they deliver a small amount of high explosive to the malefactors hunkering down in the building."

    At the same time, the Nerekhta can destroy main battle tanks and pull down whole buildings, while being rather diminutive and agile, according to the Izvestia newspaper.

    The Nerekhta is a combat robotic system co-developed by the Degtyaryov Plant and Advanced Research Foundation. The tracked platform is fit for reconnaissance, fire, fire adjustment and cargo carriage. The robot was unveiled at the Russian Defense Ministry Innovation Day in 2015.

    The robot mounts 7.62-mm and 12.7-mm machineguns and, according to the source, may well be equipped with a new machinegun to be developed specifically for it. In addition, the Nerekhta has recently received the organic TB-29B unmanned helicopter and SAU-9.0 vehicle and weapon automatic control system

    Source: Arrow http://www.armyrecognition.com/december_2016_global_defense_security_news_industry/nerekhta_robotic_system_to_be_added_to_russian_special_forces_inventory.html



    So this is a "suicide-bot", isn't it? My main problem with this is that if it gets hit, and the hit ends up in a succesful penetration, the robot can explode prematurely.
