The timing of the firing and running tests of the "Marker" robot has become known

The next tests of the Marker robotic platform are planned for August this year. In addition to specialists from the Foundation for Advanced Study (FPI), the Ministry of Defense will also take part in them, Andrey Grigoriev, Director General of the Foundation, told TASS in an interview with TASS.


As Grigoriev explained, a series of tests is planned for August, during which the operation of the chassis of the robot will be checked, and the combat modules installed on the platform will be fired. Representatives of the Ministry of Defense will take part in the tests. The robotic platform itself will be presented within the framework of the Army-2020 International Military-Technical Forum, which will be held on August 23-29 this year in the Patriot Park in the Moscow Region.

Within the framework of the Marker project, a series of running and firing tests are planned in August, which will be carried out jointly with units of the Russian Ministry of Defense

- said the general director of FPI.

The beginning of tests of the robotic platform "Marker", created jointly by the Foundation for Advanced Research and the NPO "Android Technology", was reported in early March last year. The platform is designed in a modular fashion. In the future, such a technical solution will make it possible to quickly replace the payload, observation systems, and also modernize the robot.

The ultimate goal of the Marker project is to create a completely autonomous complex capable of independently performing a wide range of works. The operator will be able to set a task, and the robot will solve all other issues on its own - to build a route, look for a target and use weapons.

    An interesting machine, only I would have an ATGM and the machine gun would have changed places, otherwise the tape feed seems very unprotected ...

      There seems to be no ATGM, it looks like a simple RPG.

        Moreover, the number of them would have increased, at least twice.

        But the tape feed was still left open ... Well, this is not correct, Firstly, security suffers, and secondly, the complexity of drawing to the machine gun, in short, is not a very reasonable decision

          This is a prototype.
          At this stage of testing, you need to see the work of all systems as much as possible.
          Armor protection will appear later if everything goes well.

            There, the tape itself can be run in a different way and a separate armor protection is simply not needed for it

              This is true, but this is still a platform mainly for working out the chassis and control algorithms and interaction with modules.
              What the modules themselves will be externally is not yet clear.
              But for what it is already clear.

        This has not been changed. This is the original photo. On the screensaver, a DSLR. As already zadolbala this fashion post mirror photos. What people, what technology.

      the feed seems very insecure ...

      But the maintainability is high.

        For an unmanned combat unit operating autonomously, this somehow sounds ... weak to say the least.

          I am, of course, ironic. And what, in your opinion, an "autonomous unmanned combat unit" should be non-recoverable (or self-replenishing)?

            No, of course, ease of repair is a necessary thing, but you should not forget about security either

    God forbid us to live until summer
    See him in a light dress,
    When in the rays of daylight
    He will open his arms
    God forbid us to touch him,
    Find out all the horror of charm
    And wake up unexpectedly
    Sweating on an old sofa ...

    This technique requires equipment that changes the height of the line of fire. Crane boom type. For shooting from behind cover from / into windows, breaks, through the fence. In its current form, it is a field target.

    what kind of robot is it? it's just a remote controlled device. This is the same as some Mavic or Phantom to call a robot, although they can fly to points and do something else according to a pre-selected program

    I do not see on it a lidar system for orienting the product in the surrounding space ... the digitization of the surrounding landscape, for making truly autonomous decisions from the cameras will be processed by the internal software + brains ????? Looks more like a remote-controlled wedge in fact. I compare, in terms of equipping with the Crusher robotic platform and its further development, the "APD multi-purpose robot" ...

    This kid has a big plus +! It is small and very cheap (with mass production), I think for one Armata, you can make 500-1000 of those that you don't mind throwing into intelligence, support, etc.
