A robotic complex has been created in Russia to work in the zone of radiation contamination.

The Russian Center for Special Operations of Special Risk EMERCOM received a new robotic complex that can replace a person during the aftermath of accidents at nuclear power plants and chemical plants.

Radiation Intelligence Robot RTK-05 of the St. Petersburg Central Research Institute of Robotics and Technical Cybernetics.

“The new robot is able to function in the zone of radiation contamination both in the autonomous mode, according to the program pre-programmed in it, and under the remote control of the operator,” the message of the Central Research Institute of Robotics and Technical Cybernetics says.

According to the press service, "the robot of the radiation reconnaissance robot (RTS-PP), devices for carrying out technological operations (RTS-TO) and the robot delivery and control system based on the Mercedes-Benz VARIO 815D vehicle" are part of the robotic complex.

The complex is a six-wheeled all-terrain vehicle, 1,4 long and m and weighing about 270 kg. It is reported that “a multi-joint manipulator capable of lifting weights up to 10 kg is installed over the front pair of wheels of the complex”.

It is reported that the robot "is equipped with a telegrammaser, allowing you to see the location of radiation sources directly on the screens of the control panel using special sensors that record the location of radiation sources and determine their strength."

The system responds to radiation sources in the energy range from 0,08 to 2,6 MeV. The complex can be controlled remotely via radio (up to 500 m) and cable connection (up to 100 m)

    Well, they know how ...
    So robotic systems of this type are not delivered to army sappers due to financial reasons?
    A recent photo from Syria: an uncle is walking by, examining the route with a hand-held "Kite" for tabs with electronics, soldiers with machine guns are covering him. And in fact, they are all "written off", because if the IED is under control, then it will certainly be activated - the threat of detection is too great.

    It’s unpleasant ...

      I'm not sure that a robot can completely replace a person in such a delicate matter.

        Of course she won’t. But in carrying out many tasks, he will completely cope, which means that there is no need to endanger human life. Useful robot.

        Well, the photograph is a concrete example. The first guy with a nonlinear transition detector can and should be replaced by a robotic complex. It just seems that the uncle is cheaper, to train a good sapper is a very expensive process.

        By the way, the Korshun manufacturers offer its version on a multicopter.

        But it seems that the Ministry of Defense decided that it was too expensive, it is necessary to leave money for the show "Safe Route" ...

        And what is the delicacy of radiation? It is there that a person needs to be replaced so that there is no second Chernobyl.

      I’ll tell you a secret. They were able to 20 years ago. They simply did not give money, but preferred to buy imported ones.
      In 1998 he wrote a diploma there. Normal men, sleeved. But they barely scraped money even for salaries. As they told us. We went to different departments of the Ministry of Emergencies, Moscow Region, but firstly, they themselves could not give a clear and clear statement of work, and secondly, there was no money. Or they said a masterpiece phrase. TK we will not give you, give us the finished product. And then we'll see if it suits us. At the same time, they bought expensive foreign analogues.

    Countrymen tried. Simple and tasteful. I am glad that, along with the atom and the chemical industry, they have not forgotten. But damn it
    Mercedes-Benz VARIO 815D. "
    The only way I can explain this is because the prototype took what was in the yard. In the series (if he goes) is no longer rolling. Or how? request

      By the way, I went to the TsNII RiTK website - there are a whole line of such devices, there are fewer.

    For radiation intelligence robot. That would be such a toy, yes, 30 years ago during Chernobyl

      So it was ... And literally weeks were spent on development ...
      At your leisure, go to the search engine for "Chernobyl robotic complexes", you will find a lot of interesting ...

        According to the employees of the Central Research Institute of RTK, who are familiar with the topic, a typical mistake was made there - the use of equipment beyond the permissible limits. Those. they tried to work robots on the radio channel, and in radiation conditions (especially large, by the way, in a fire, the radio channel also crashes) - this is impossible. Lost control. And it was necessary to use a cable. There were several unpleasant cases with robots. Because of this, after Chernobyl, interest in robots has dried up. Only now he is objecting.

          It is not only necessary to create and produce robots, but also train users, including potential ones, to use them, so that the history of Chernobyl in robotics does not repeat itself. As far as I know, only because of the incorrect and often rash (not fulfilling the order of using robots) use of available robotic tools did some unpleasant cases with robots failing work. And for simple human nonsense, dozens of people who received large doses of radiation had to pay.

    Here, along the way, they use the old ideas wisely - in 94M, one employee of a numbered research institute complained that their topic of robots was closed for the army, and the group that was engaged in this was disbanded. Since then, we have been using ideas and technologies.

    Is there a demand? Or will it be created soon?

      Get your sleigh ready in summer and your cart in winter!
      The news, I would not say that struck, but in this case there is not much relevance and novelty.
      The technique is good and in certain cases it will certainly be in demand, that's all!

    You know how to do it! And it’s possible to do it further and to create a better one on its basis.

    The system is good and necessary, but it seems to me alone that 500 m of control over the radio channel is a short distance, in the conditions of "Chernobyl"? Can anyone advise? Do you have dosimetrists?
