    Russian Army Robots - Page 17 Snowmobile

    Russia Designed Drone Snowmobile

    At the Army-2019 military forum, the Mechatronic Systems laboratory presented an unmanned snowmobile. This year, the designers tested actuators, and after testing of stabilization platform, the Arctic robot will get the autopilot modules. Changes may affect powerplant as well; electric drive may replace the combustion engine, the lab director Alexander Kudryavtsev shared with Mil.Press Today.

    The laboratory set about designing of the unmanned snowmobile two years ago in a proactive manner. In the end of 2018, the company purchased a commercial snowmobile, and the engineers mounted actuators on it. Last winter, these components have effectively passed the trials.

    "When some years ago politicians began active talks about the Arctic exploration, we realized there were no any effective snow-going vehicle on the market. There are many rovers, but this mission is most suitable for snowmobiles. However, at that point there were no unmanned robot of this kind, so we decided to be the pioneers", said Alexander Kudryavtsev.

    One of the robot’s features is the stabilization platform that, turning on its axis, changes the vehicle’s gravity center and keeps the course on the harsh snow terrain. Real field trials of the drone snowmobile is scheduled in the coming winter.

    Currently, the vehicle is controlled remotely, however, by the yearend it may probably move in a standalone mode. Other alterations are being considered as well. Designers outlined the particular drawbacks of the available engine regarding power and response on control commands.

    "We’re focused on cooperation with other labs. Recently, we got to know the developers specialized in electrification. I hope they’ll help us to replace the combustion engine for electric motor drive. This will resolve a bunch of technical issues and lighten the body", explained the director of Mechatronic Systems. "Other cooperation area is automation. Now our snowmobile is controlled remotely, but we plan to equip it with an autopilot. In Russia, there’s lots of companies developing hardware/software packages, so I think we’ll definitely find good partners. Hopefully, this winter our snowmobile will move automatically".

    Putin discusses the use of artificial intelligence with the military


    SOCHI, December 5th. / TASS /. Russian President Vladimir Putin suggested discussing the use of artificial intelligence in the army and navy at the final meeting on the development of the Armed Forces and the defense industry.

    “Today on our agenda are issues related to the development and implementation of advanced technologies, including technologies using artificial intelligence. Nowadays, they are widely used to create modern types of weapons and equipment, robotic systems, weapons based on new physical principles, which will determine the future in many respects. our army and navy, "Putin said.

    According to him, the final meeting on defense will be held on Thursday, during the current week key directions of the development of the Navy and the implementation of the state defense order were examined.

    “It is necessary to comprehensively analyze and evaluate the test results of promising weapons systems. I note that successful research and development in these high-tech areas are also crucial for the development of the civilian sector, to increase the competitiveness of science, to create advanced industries and infrastructure, and a digital economy,” he said.

    This is serious business and not posturing nonsense. Processing the vast information flow during war time is a fundamental challenge to war planners and generals.
    This is part of a larger class of problem in observations of physical systems. The data flow from satellites that observe atmospheric composition has to be cut since
    there is not enough ground station capacity to process and store it all. AI does not have to be true intelligence. An adaptive neural network that can learn on
    the fly and parse complex information (e.g. extract modes that humans would miss) would greatly optimize decision making. In war, mistakes are expensive and
    give the enemy chances to advance.

    The need for AI is also due to the growing networking and data gathering on the battlefield unlike during any major war in history. There is literally an explosion of
    data gathering capacity in modern military configuration. Soldiers and machines all stream data continuously to command centers. Hiring more human data analysts
    is not going to solve the data processing problem. The volume and complexity requires serious computing power and AI offers a way to optimize the use of computing
    resources. There is not enough time in war to develop algorithms and parameterizations to model the evolving "war system". AI basically makes itself and does
    the model development on the fly.

    Very true.

    Today's warfare is based on speed and mobility. Especially when Russia doesn't have enormous forces and can't rely on superiority in numbers.

    AI won't change how kom-shtab work, it will only decrease decision time and helping data analysis. I believe AI was aleady tried in NDCC ages ago, but for nuclear war.

    In Russia, work began on a new combat robot "Companion"

    Russian Army Robots - Page 17 1476135838_0:0:1000:750_1440x900_80_0_1_4027e138d0a156d1213aba1f42ddb0a7.jpg

    MOSCOW, April 14 - RIA News. In Russia, the first stage of development work (ROC) on the creation of a family of combat robotic systems "Companion" in the interests of the Ministry of Defense has started .
    According to data from the government procurement website, the Uran-9 combat robot development company 766 UPTK (part of the Kalashnikov concern ) has published several documents stating that by the end of 2020 the first stage of the OCD components should be completed under the code " Companion. " The amount of financing exceeds 130 million rubles.

    A total of six applications were posted. Among the systems under development are a power plant, a technical vision system, an optical-location station, a combat vehicle, and so on.
    Previously, "Companion" was called an armored robotic complex, developed on the initiative of the Kalashnikov concern. However, at the Army-2019 forum, Vladimir Dmitriev (at that time the general director of Kalashnikov) stated that the new Companions "will be completely different products."

    https://ria.ru/20200414/1570010258.html

    There's going to be a family of 'Companion' vehicles, hopefully we get a family of vehicles for Nerehta and Volk-2 series of UGV's, and I also would like to see bigger vehicles act as 'mother ships' for these UGV's, providing hook up source of energy, the ability to carry multiples of these robots (6-10) and command & control.

    Interesting idea of having them work together in teams but at the same time a bit logical and obvious really... Smile

    A few patrol vehicles armed with machine guns supported by a larger vehicle with perhaps a folding arm on its roof to raise sensors up in to the air to provide excellent fields of view... so for instance a group of smaller vehicles with 40mm grenade launchers could drive around independently patrolling an airfield... perhaps operating in trenches designed for troops to take shelter in when the airfield comes under attack... with one or two command vehicles with excellent views... even sitting in those same trenches, it could find targets and direct fire on to those targets without the gun platforms ever having a line of sight view of what they are shooting at. The 40mm grenade launchers they are going to be using now have a range of up to 2.5km and firing from inside a trench means the firing signature will not be spotted... the command vehicle could direct fire from 3 or 4 vehicles using 40mm grenade launchers and heavy calibre machine guns at approaching enemy infantry groups 2km away... the gun vehicles might be hundreds of metres apart but their fire could be coordinated to cut down an attack.

    Most importantly for the enemy planning an attack... they won't know where the fire might come from or if the command vehicle is alone or if they are using their own aerial drones to direct fire.

    When attacking a fire base you recon and observe where the gun positions are located so you can organise the attack to take out heavy weapons early and to attack from directions not well covered... with robots moving around all the time with quite heavy weapons mounted on them you can move fire power to where it is needed and direct it as needed to stop infantry or VIED attacks... a 30mm cannon would stop most armoured trucks but an 82mm Vasilek automatic mortar could effectively be a direct fire weapon with a powerful round able to stop most vehicle armoured or otherwise... without requiring an actual tank.

    Of course their upgrading of SPG-9 recoilless rifle type weapons would be interesting... imagine a belt fed version... on a robot vehicle...

    Russian "Marker" will be the carrier of Kamikaze shock drones
    Russian Army Robots - Page 17 Marker_d_850

    The experimental Russian combat robot Marker could become a platform for single-shot drone drone. Previously, the tracked vehicle was tested with a combat module armed with a Kalashnikov machine gun and anti-tank missiles.

    "It is planned to equip the Marker with unmanned aerial vehicles that provide both reconnaissance and destruction of enemy targets," Vitaly Davydov, head of the Scientific and Technical Council of the Advanced Research Foundation , told RIA Novosti.

    The UAV module provides autonomous launch - a swarm of barrage unmanned ammunition that destroys targets with its own strike. Each of the kamikaze drones can perform tasks both as part of a group and individually.

    Recall that last fall the presentation of the tracker platform "Marker" took place. Shooting tests were planned in 2020.

    Ironically the biggest threats to their own IADS is their own weapons http://members.home.nl/7seas/radcalc.htm that carrier of drones looks like its 3 feet or one meter tall and if there is a radar that is 10 meters tall than the platform can safely launch those kamikaze drones from 17km+ ranges away. they can be used to overwhelm air defenses.

    Judging by the video, they really need to crank up the power of the control motors to increase the speed of movement of the barrels.
    There was a lot of lag between the aiming by the soldier and the sluggish follow-on by the robot. Being able to aim quickly is
    rather important in real battles.

    17km away? The Kamikaze drones shown by Kalashnikov Concern have ranges up to 40km. What's even more interesting is that Kalashnikov Concern now has the legendary NPO Molniya design bureau under their umbrella, the design bureau behind the autonomous space craft Buran. Kalashnikov Concern is now creating hypersonic target drones (likely with the help of NPO Molniya), and it's only a matter of time before they develope a hypersonic kamikaze drone! Twisted Evil

    The yanqui hubris filled windbags thought that Russians couldn't even pick their noses. All the talk about stealth and drone swarms.
    We'll see what the brave new world of hypersonics brings us. But for sure it won't be the world that the yanquis dreamed they
    would be ruling.

    Small tank with a machine gun and rockets... reminded me of a T-26 or T-37 or something...

    I must say I cringed a bit with the vehicle behind that guy with the rifle when he effectively muzzle swept himself. I suspect the idea is to have the robot on the high ground covering him or is he on the high ground covering it while it moves forward and does the dangerous leg work.

    That scope looks like one of those flash IWS systems... it is clearly connected to the vehicle... I wonder if he gets a picture in picture image of what the vehicle sees in his scope?

    With movement sensors it would be useful to cover a snipers back while he is in position doing his job...

    Marker project: the robot is preparing for new tests
    Russian Army Robots - Page 17 1587559868_marker-1

    Since 2018, the National Center for the Development of Technologies and Basic Elements of Robotics of the Foundation for Advanced Research and the Android Technology company have been working on the Marker experimental platform. Last year, this development was first presented to the public, and recently the new details of the work carried out and plans for the future became known.

    According to official figures

    On April 21, TASS published an interview with the head of the Scientific and Technical Council and the Deputy General Director of the FPI Vitaly Davydov. The topic of conversation was new developments in the field of robotics - including experimental robotic platform "Marker".

    The representative of the FPI recalled the objectives of the project. Using the "Marker", technologies are being developed to create and use promising military-oriented RTKs. Methods of independent work and interaction with people, other robots or weapons and military equipment are being developed. During these processes, specific technical solutions are checked in all major areas. The best ideas are selected and developed.

    Russian Army Robots - Page 17 1587559874_marker-4

    The ultimate goal of the Marker pilot project is to create a fully autonomous RTK capable of independently performing a wide range of activities. The operator will be able to set a task, and the robot will decide all other issues independently - to build a route, search for a target and use weapons.

    At the same time, Marker remains a pilot project for working out specific solutions. For this, the platform has an open architecture that allows you to implement and test various devices and components of domestic development.

    Passed and planned

    The project implements not only autonomy, but also a teleoperator mode. It can be useful when performing certain tasks, for example, when clearing mines or carrying out work in conditions dangerous to humans. Moreover, as noted by V. Davydov, telecontrol is a completed stage - now all attention is focused on more complex developments.

    Russian Army Robots - Page 17 1587559886_marker-7

    At the time of the first demonstration to the general public, Marker RTC could independently build routes, go to the indicated points and fire. Research and design work is ongoing, which is already leading to new results.

    According to V. Davydov, the complex has already "mastered" the use of small arms . With its help, it independently affects both ground and air targets. In the near future should begin testing a new complex of weapons, including grenade launchers. This will expand the range of combat missions.

    In the near future, the Marker RTC will include unmanned aerial vehicles. With their help, it is proposed to carry out reconnaissance and increase situational awareness, as well as to strike at some targets. It is possible to use both UAVs and so-called. barrage of ammunition.

    Russian Army Robots - Page 17 1587559926_marker-2

    Any operations with weapons should be carried out under the control of the commander, depending on the existing conditions and assigned tasks. There are several options for the use of technology. The first provides for autonomous work in a given area. In the second case, the robot must support the unit and receive specific tasks from its commander.

    Expected Outcomes

    Work on the experimental platform "Marker" is planned to be completed next year. By this time, several experimental machines will be built to demonstrate the capabilities of the platform and its basic solutions. However, the main result of the project will be a set of the most successful and effective technologies suitable for use in promising projects.

    According to V. Davydov, in the near future a full-fledged demonstration RTK will appear. It will include five robotic platforms with different equipment. Prototypes will carry machine-gun and grenade launchers, as well as devices for launching UAVs and barrage ammunition. Such a composition of the RTK will allow us to show all the capabilities of the technology obtained through promising ideas and solutions.

    Russian Army Robots - Page 17 1587559842_marker-3

    How soon similar equipment can get into the troops, the FPI leadership does not say. The objective of the Fund and related enterprises is to develop technologies and create experimental models. The development of equipment for full operation should be carried out by a separate order of the Ministry of Defense, the Ministry of Internal Affairs or other structures.

    Experimental samples

    The first messages about the Marker program appeared at the beginning of last year. Since then, FPI and Android Technology have repeatedly talked about current work and even published a video of testing equipment at the training ground. For testing, built two experimental platforms with different target equipment. In the near future should appear three more products with a different payload.

    The Marker robotic platform is a medium-sized tracked vehicle equipped with a set of electronic equipment and having a seat for the target load. The possibility of building a wheeled vehicle with the same equipment and the same capabilities is claimed. The structure of the robotic complex includes several platforms with different equipment, an operator console and other components.

    The platform integrates remote control, autopilot, computer system, vision system, etc. The composition of the equipment may vary to conduct certain studies. So, in the current tests, platforms with a machine-gun-grenade launcher module and with a device for launching an UAV are involved.

    Russian Army Robots - Page 17 1587559842_marker-5

    At the end of July last year, it was reported that the Marker successfully passed sea trials. Machines have shown their ability to independently build a route to a given point and overcome it. In the near future it was planned to begin fire tests. In October, FPI and Android Technology were again shown at the training ground.

    At the end of November, the FPI announced that in the first half of 2020, test firing with autonomous operation should begin. Then it became known that in the future two prototypes on a wheeled chassis will join two tracked platforms.

    Prospects for Directions

    As the developers have repeatedly mentioned, the goal of the current Marker program is to create a set of technologies and solutions for the further development of promising RTKs. While they are being worked out with the help of experimental platforms. In the future, if there is interest from a potential customer, the development of full-fledged combat systems is possible.

    Russian Army Robots - Page 17 1587559890_6

    An order for such equipment may appear in the very near future. Work on the new project will take several years, after which the Russian army will be able to get a fundamentally new model of equipment. Unlike a number of existing RTKs, promising systems based on operating time according to Marker will be able to work not only according to operator’s commands, but also independently.

    Thanks to this, a mechanical "fighter" will appear in the various divisions, capable of helping living soldiers or replacing them. In this case, the interaction of man and the RTK will be as simple and convenient as possible, in accordance with the requirements of use on the battlefield.

    However, autonomous RTKs of new types will appear in the army no earlier than in a few years. In the meantime, the main task in this direction is to continue the development and testing of existing experimental systems, such as the Marker platform. In the very near future, its developers will begin a new phase of testing, and then the appearance of new experimental equipment is expected. The "Marker" in its current form will not get into the troops, but will open the way for other equipment with the same or improved capabilities.

    The tele-control development cycle has been completed, what's also interesting is the top image seems to have something like a micro-MLRS. Looks about the same size as the towed BM-14 MLRS, maybe a reintroduction/replacement? They should totally bring back towed MLRS.

    I would suspect those tubes at the back are expected to hit longer ranged targets but I suspect a little drone would not be the best basis for an artillery rocket system.

    I think it is probably more likely those at ATAKA or SHTURM or perhaps even Pine or Kornet missiles and that they are probably raised up before they are fired, or perhaps are angled like that to reach more distant targets...

    ]b]Over 20 robotic mine clearance vehicles to arrive for Russia’s engineering troops in 2020[/b]

    Under the defense procurement plan, the defense contractor has already transferred 12 upgraded robotic vehicles to the storage facility in the Moscow Region, according to the top brass

    MOSCOW, May 25. /TASS/. Over 20 Uran-6 robotic mine-clearing vehicles will arrive for Russia’s engineering troops under the defense procurement plan in 2020, the Defense Ministry of Russia reported on Monday.

    "By late 2020, the engineering troops are set to receive 22 Uran-6 upgraded multi-purpose robotic mine-clearing vehicles," the ministry said in a statement.

    Under the defense procurement plan, the defense contractor has already transferred 12 upgraded robotic vehicles to the storage facility in the Moscow Region, from which they will be delivered to engineering troops of the Western and Southern Military Districts, the statement says.

    The Uran-6 upgraded multi-purpose robotic vehicle includes an eight-wheel Kamaz truck (for transporting the anti-mine robot) equipped with a special platform with a multi-lift system. The platform’s design cuts the time of preparing the robot for its operation several-fold, which takes about 3-4 minutes.

    The Uran-6 robotic vehicle is designated to make breaches in anti-personnel minefields and carry out area mine clearance in the remotely-controlled mode. The robotic mine-clearing vehicle can carry out mine clearance at a distance of up to 1 km from an operator.

    When clearing an area of explosives, the vehicle makes it possible to exclude combat engineers’ direct contact with munitions.

    MARKER complex making good progress. The Marker complex will consist of five platforms (2 with caterpillar tracks are already used for research), by end 2020 2 x wheeled platforms will be ready. In 2021 the last platform will combine all the best knowledge and competencies.

    Tests of the Russian combat robotic complex "Uranus-9" in Syria in 2019. To date, according to the Russian Ministry of Defense, all mistakes have been eliminated, and the complex has been adopted by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

    Very good to hear, of all the new robots the Uran-9 is certainly my favorite.

    Such a versatile and powerful little thing. I can imagine it would be excellent for urban operations.
