Indian army will get "iron soldiers"The Indian defense research and development organization DRDO is developing "soldier-robots" as part of an extensive program to create unmanned combat capabilities, joining an elected group of countries that is working in this area, reports India Today 9 of June.


According to the project, combat robots will be designed with a very high level of intelligence so that they can distinguish between threats and each other. They can be deployed in difficult war zones on the so-called. control lines (Line of Control - LoC) to prevent the loss of human lives.

“We will create robotic soldiers with a high level of intelligence than the one we are talking about today. This is a new program, and a number of laboratories have already achieved success in robotics, ”said the new head of DRDO Avinash Chander.

The head of DRDO called the projects of creating robot soldiers as “one of the priority directions”, noting that “unmanned systems will become the main means in future wars”. Initially, a robot soldier will assist a person on the battlefield.

At the initial stage, the robot soldier must be able to warn the soldier people of the enemy approaching, at the next stage he will act on the front line together with the personnel of the units and help him.

    And it would not hurt us to seriously take up this direction.

      We always looked for asymmetric answers. For example, compact electromagnetic charges and tactical universal nuclear loaves. Changed some nonsense and got an EMP bomb, twisted something else, and here's a neutron. And so that you can put on a variety of media, from guns to bombs. No, drones need to be developed, but to make them the basis of everything and everything is not advisable.

    At the initial stage, the robot soldier should be able to warn human soldiers about the approach of the enemy, at the next stage he will act on the front line together with the personnel of the units and help him
    and at the 3rd stage, get out of control and kill all living things

    Android-like robot soldiers will not be more effective than humans. It is necessary to make a robot, taking as a basis its ordered performance characteristics and already then form.

    Just do not be naive to think that a robot soldier will necessarily be (externally) like a person, it will be a machine functionally performing the work of soldiers. most likely on a tracked track.

      A humanoid robot can use the same weapon as a simple infantryman-man, move in the same transport, for a special robot you need to separately develop weapons and vehicles separately.

        Why is a humanoid robot a weapon for humans? After all, it was created taking into account the total mass, mass of ammunition, recoil force and so on. Those. created by man.
        Instead of a single 5.45 mm assault rifle, a robot can attach a pair of 9 mm built-in rifles with various types of ammunition. Well, its mass will increase by 50 kilograms ... this is not important.
        The same thing with transport - you can make the robot folding, a la transformer, and in a compact state, on a regular truck, bring it to the right place. Further, the truck pours them out with self-loading and dumps them, robots are activated, open and on their own chassis (most likely tracked) go to carry out the task.
        For a special robot, you need to separately develop weapons and vehicles separately.

        Weapons are easier to make built-in or even modular. Transport - a regular truck or van.

        well, if mankind will come up with mini-elements in the near future for power, and even of sufficient capacity, then maybe I’m not sure that such a robot will be too complicated a mechanism, and any damage can damage it, it’s only in the movies, cyborgs are super-armored and invulnerable.

    Well done, of course, Indians, but I doubt very much that their robot will look like in the title of the article.
    Probably outwardly it will be something like this:

        And they poop on the street (watch a video about India) so it’s more convenient to step over the heaps of poop. lol
        Or another version, their defense minister is a big fan of Russian ballet.

        This is a change of guard on the Indo-Pakistani border. (with element of intimidation)

        The test is designed to detect signs of intoxication, and serves only to enable the policeman to understand - there is reason to detain the driver for the purpose of further testing for alcohol or not.
        In other words - alcohol test.

    The main thing is not to give this robot soldier 100 grams, otherwise he will start to bullet in his own ones or he will decide all the enemies with whom the tads will fight.

      The main thing for this robot is not to load the Kamasutra soldier into a prog, or Indian folk dances. Imagine on the battlefield, first the dance will dance "Jimi Acha Acha" and then he will run to the enemy soldiers with the Kama Sutra. Or in reverse order, first the Kama Sutra - then dancing laughing belay

    A strange solution for a 1,5 billion country where decisions are made to limit birth rates. A soldier lacking chtoli? Or is it so right-humanistic attitude towards their citizens?

    scream !!! a country with several billions of people, and where 60% of the population is below the poverty line, is going to jump over the planet on technology ?! Give each Indian a bayonet and your whole world!
    But seriously: the next cut in the spirit of Rusnano, only in the Indian manner.

    One thing is not clear, why India, in which millions in poverty are dying to have cyber soldiers who are worth crazy money? It’s easier for them to invest the money spent on the project in the contract team.

    This is only a publicity of the areas of activity in which India has good chances. It’s not for nothing that they create the T-50 with us in cooperation, it seems they are responsible for the on-board electronics, if we buy theirs it means nothing to the hell, or in general there is none as such, and we must catch up.

      Why do you think so? It seems like the Indian aircraft will be based on the T-50, but with theirs electronics and at their request. Our will be ours.

        Apparently, one should understand with “theirs” - with French or Israeli.

    Why do we need robosolds ??? Half of the conscripts have the intelligence of a pocket calculator, and the natives drafted into the troops delicately speaking of the Southern Republics, so the Terminators in general! There are muscles, but just 10 teams of brains! Drones!
