"Nerekhta" reveals secrets: what is capable of a combat robot

7
Work on the new robotic multipurpose complex began in 2013 year. The project became a joint development of the Plant. Degtyarev and the Foundation for Advanced Studies. The main objective of the project was the creation of a remotely controlled universal tracked platform capable of carrying various combat modules. Intelligence, transportation of small loads, as well as fire support infantry units were identified as the main tasks of the robot.


In 2015, the Nerekhta complex was first demonstrated to the general public. Its base is a universal tracked platform. It is a compact armored vehicle with its own engine and transmission. It is equipped with autonomous communication and control systems. The case protects the internal units of the machine from falling bullets of caliber to 7,62 mm and fragments, and around its perimeter video cameras are mounted for all-round visibility.

The combat version of "Nerekhta" can be equipped with a large-caliber machine gun CORD or an automatic grenade launcher AG-30M.

    Something about Uranus-9 is completely silent. And how much was an enthusiastic screech at first ... where are the deliveries of this platform to the troops?
    And for Nerekhta, I think the main enemy is not a tank or armored personnel carrier, but a sniper with armor-piercing bullets.

      "Uranus" in Syria rolled last year, now we hear talk about preparations for export.

        A friend, a sapper double bass, had already been 2 times in Syria, said that there was little use from robots. "Uranus" with a mounted metal detector missed mines, after the robot they walked and found a damn thing. He did not see combat use, only as a sapper platform.

          So the "uranium" has been shitty, so the topic has subsided. They will analyze what can be tightened up. that it’s impossible, they will cut it off, swap it, paint it with a new dye, and you will see what happens. Work on the ground for years to come, and while it is being finished, the “platforms”, “non-powered ships” and other drones will roll back their mandatory program. Purely my opinion.

            But I heard the opposite - Uranus was extremely useful in clearing Palmyra.

    I looked, and made a couple of conclusions
    1) If the video was shot for our pioneers, the axis will be the same, but if you wanted to make an advertisement using this video, you need to change the lead.
    2) The control panel is horror. I had such a joystick on the very first computer "zx spectrum", maybe someone remembers. A terribly uncomfortable thing. There would be no kinect to come up with for intuitive control and full use of human reflexes of the operator.
    3) Field of view of the operator - atas! He needs to twist the camera to look around. There is no question of using the operator’s peripheral vision (and we receive up to 60% of information through it).
    4) In general, the impression was that they were advertising a heavy machine gun, not a robot.
    5) To all appearances, the advertised machine gun does not have stabilization
    6) I didn’t see the same function that allows the robot to search for targets, even in a given sector and hit them on its own, although I know that work was being done in the carpet in this direction.
    7) About the robot intelligence complex the same is silent. There is a thermal imager, it is not there, what the night channel is like, is there an acoustic sensor that they can ... only God knows, but we are not mortals.
    3)
