Tests of the Marker robot with live firing are planned in 2020

In Russia, the testing of the latest Marker combat robot will continue. The next stage with test shooting in offline mode is scheduled for the first half of the 2020 year. This was reported by the press service of the Advanced Research Foundation (FPI).


According to the report, in the first half of next year, the Marker robot is scheduled to be fired offline. Testing will be carried out on a crawler platform variant that passed sea trials in July of this year. The creation of two Marker robotic platforms on a wheeled chassis will also be implemented during the second test phase.

Shooting tests of the Marker experimental robotic platform are planned in the first half of 2020. During testing, the platform will hit targets offline using various types of payloads

- Said the press service.

The start of testing the Marker robotic platform, created jointly by the Advanced Research Foundation and the Android Technique Research and Production Association (the developer of the anthropomorphic robot Fedor who worked on the ISS), was reported back in early March this year. It is assumed that on the basis of this platform the interaction of ground-based robots, unmanned aviation and special forces. The platform is designed in a modular fashion. In the future, such a technical solution will quickly replace the payload, surveillance systems, as well as upgrade the robot.

"Marker" is an experimental robotic platform, a designer, on which it is possible to work out models of the future combat operations

- stated in FPI.

Earlier it was reported that at the training ground in Magnitogorsk in mid-October of this year, demonstration tests of the Marker universal combat robots platform took place. Two crawler robotic platforms equipped with a unified payload module and a cluster module for launching unmanned aerial vehicles - small quadrocopters participated in the tests.

    Well, let's wait for the robot to show itself in shooting. Good luck to developers and testers! hi

      A good shooting performance for the robot is just one aspect.
      And not the most important at this stage, since the solution of the issues of fire destruction of a target is a feasible and fulfilled task.
      The tasks of autonomy, combat stability, algorithms of autonomous actions, etc. are much more important.

        The main thing is that his roof does not go and he clearly understands where his own and where are the enemies.

          That is, what would this product be called a robot, it must have an image recognition system, at least some kind of artificial intelligence, and if it is a telecontrol platform, then this is far from a robot.

    Are there too many robotic platforms? Unification neglected? request

      How many developers, so many platforms. Competition will weed out the excess.

        God forbid ... An excessive number of different platforms a priori complicate the service.

          At the stage of various kinds of tests, the viability of certain technical solutions is checked. This is even more important in military robotics, where there are no ready-made solutions yet.

          Here for the special forces specifically, they can afford exclusive. As I understand it, this thing itself must carry a big barrel for the fighter. She will need good brains for this.

    While they are outlined. In Russia, already in Syria, the young fighter took the course. soldier Names do not call the machine, Themselves in the Internet, rummage. Why the hell ...

    Automatic weapon control ... as if nothing particularly new. If you complete a completely autonomous control, beware of everything and everyone, your own, by the way, too! It happens differently, on the battlefield, for example.

      Robots can only help break the line of fire anyway you still have to use tanks and infantry, because only living people can occupy and hold the conquered territory.

        Well, yes, the "notorious" foot in the boot, the foot of a soldier, indicating that the territory is seized.
