A video of firing and sea trials of the Marker robotic platform has appeared on the Web

45

The Marker robotic platform, developed by the Advanced Research Foundation, has passed the next stage of live-fire tests. The FPI posted the video of the testing on its YouTube channel.


The video, about 2 minutes long, shows the combat firing of the "Marker" from a machine gun installed in the combat module in various modes. During the tests, the following were worked out: target locking and shooting when controlled by the operator, automatic shooting at stationary and moving targets, as well as automatic movement around the range. At the end of the video, the robot wrote the word "Hurray" on the shield with a machine gun.

The video description is missing any additional test information.


The beginning of tests of the robotic platform "Marker", created jointly by the Foundation for Advanced Research and NPO "Android Technology", was announced in early March 2019. 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 upgrade 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.

        As the unsuccessful experience of using Uranos in Syria has shown, a ground-based drone in control is far from being an airborne or a sea one. To control a ground drone, it turned out that the "pilot" of a drone needs knowledge, at least of a tank commander, in order to ensure competent control and interaction on the battlefield. In addition, a ground-based drone is exposed to numerous fire weapons on the battlefield from different directions, knocking out sensors for monitoring the situation and control. Well, shielding requires a repeater loitering in the sky, the destruction of which leads to the immobilization of an entire unit of ground drones. In addition, the need to replenish ammunition, configure and maintain the drone on the battlefield is also a vulnerable spot ... In general, ground armored drone is still only a spectacular toy for various presentations and showy events or for actions against a limited contingent that does not have a wide range of countermeasures. for example, against terrorists who took hostages and barricaded themselves in the building ...

            It doesn't work, this requires direct radio visibility, otherwise it won't work to build a synchronous and at the same time wide communication channel suitable for video. Even if it turns out to build such a channel, it will take too many nodes that are too easy to knock out.
            Yes, and the tactics / strategy of drones, although promising, and definitely needed, but clearly not in the same version as uranium and the marker, because they specifically have minuscule benefits in terms of the sum of the parameters.

      Probably, some "brains" are laid. But their level was demonstrated by targets located - well, very close, point-blank.

      Belarusians, by the way, a similar weapon module, but without a chassis, from their company "Display" have demonstrated for a long time, and their capabilities and "intelligence", the module showed in a similar way - "tracing" the name of the company "Display" on the targets, and "in two passage "- from left to right, and then from right to left ...

      seize control

      Modern cryptographic algorithms are guaranteed to be secure. Therefore, there can be no talk of any interception, unless, of course, there are no "bookmarks" in the equipment itself. And jamming a secure tactical network is difficult, but theoretically possible. But even if drones assembled on the knee by barmaley in Syria, without any communication and navigation, are capable of reaching targets on one inertial system, then such a robot with good computing power probably has sufficiently perfect algorithms to complete the task and return without any connection.

      It is unlikely that it will be possible to intercept control, the communication protocol is encrypted using any cryptographic algorithm (AES, GOST, etc.), encryption keys are created using a hardware random number generator and loaded before starting the operation (as an option). In this case, interception is possible at the time of generation and exchange of keys, that is, a recruited person with a compromised device.

    The device is good, but the volume is annoying. IMHO, we need to have a car no larger than a motorcycle with a sidecar and the corresponding height - then it will be a suitable and inconspicuous device, at the same time capable of carrying weapons and the more unified in details with civilian equipment, the better.

        Gee-gee. Especially amused: "replaceable bulletproof glass", "protection" from ATGM, ATGM, RPG and air enemy. And a cartoon with a "fight" is simply, something with something (on clean streets, on smooth roads, without enemy drones in the air, etc.): the insurgents did not have time to shoot, their drones are instantly destroyed, there is no way psychics behind control ( Ah! These are miraculous sensors in a circle!) ... In general, "Putin cartoons" are just resting ..

        I read this company mostly specializing in architecture, a curious reorientation) As for the typewriter - all these animashki are beautiful and captivating, of course, but it's hard for me to imagine how all this would look "in metal" - there would be a lot of pitfalls as far as I understand.
        6 electric motors are quite expensive for a military product of the "serial consumable" function, in general, a robot is just something like that. This is not counting the drives, all these cameras, a capacious hefty battery under military standards ..
        The internal volume of the robot turns out to be extremely saturated, and I have doubts that this is feasible - 2x for 500 cartridges for Kalash will take up a decent volume located under the tower. There will also be a decent volume for 500 spherical grenades - to which you still need to squeeze in a reliable automatic loader and drives for rotating the turret and changing the angles of the weapon (probably duplicated). There, according to the project, there are a lot of cameras and microphones - that is, a very steeply weakened zone is obtained, just stuffed with critical nodes. On the sides of which there is aluminum armor with small DZ elements. By the way, it's not entirely clear to me how high-resolution cameras and microphones will be combined in the vicinity of the remote sensing array.
        The rear of the robot will be occupied by the installation with ATGMs + separate drives for it - this is a rather large volume, in fact, the entire space from the rear to the tower with an automatic loader and ammunition under it bursts. It turns out that the remaining space (from the bottom of the automatic loader to the bottom of the car and the front of the car) will have to be divided by the battery, some kind of computing power, radio equipment. Despite the fact that the bottom will have to at least somehow be booked, and most likely it will be some kind of anti-mine geometry, then the volume will be even less. Of course, it is possible to spread the battery into several parts - but given the imperfect booking and remote sensing, it may turn out that in battle conditions, the spaced battery will be much more dangerous than a single one. Since we have all the elements tied to the battery - a bunch of motors, drives, sensors, telecontrol and at the same time computing power with the prospect of some independent actions - the battery will be larger, it will probably occupy almost the entire volume described above. Where the intellectual filling (and cooling to it) and radio equipment will disappear, I do not understand.

        To summarize - in my opinion, all of the above makes the "Scorpion" a curious but dubiously realizable concept. The product turns out to be oversaturated, expensive, insufficiently protected. For "cannon fodder" it is too expensive and full of equipment, for special operations it has too many weapons, for security functions as well. Survival in urban battles will directly depend on computing power - for which there will be stupidly no place - or there will be no energy.

        IMHO, if we talk about this concept, I would put the AK into the turret, remove the second one, place 2 ATGMs behind-on the sides of the turret, for grenades I would use compact mortars in the rear of the robot, with a small ammunition load.
        Perhaps, in this case, it would be possible to save volume on the intellectual filling and battery, without overdoing it with unnecessary functions and at the same time not sacrificing much the potential for damage.

      Fully autonomous robots with some kind of advanced AI is a distant prospect.

      Most likely, there will be no clear division into robots and drones. "Dumb" drones will take on more and more tasks. Those. in the simplest version, the operator aims the weapon at the target according to the picture; in a more advanced version, the drone itself accompanies the target and chooses the moment to open fire (when permission has been obtained).

      It's good that there is already a working platform in the hardware. Polygon with targets. Now the creative development team and run in and improve.

    of course, the degrees of freedom of a ground-based unmanned aircraft are less than those of a flying one, but a ground-based one can operate where the use of a UAV is difficult, it is imperative, in my opinion, to operate at night, in fog (presence of a thermal imager, etc.).
    the most lightweight ground unmanned aerial vehicle (buggy type) with a thermal imager and, for example, with a PKM, with a set of spare parts for field repairs, can successfully nightmare sleepy opponents.
    for mass production, the price will be available to our partners in africa.
