The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation will create a robotics center by 2014

MOSCOW, 7 August. (ARMS-TASS). The Russian Ministry of Defense will create a robotics center by 2014, Deputy Defense Minister Oleg Ostapenko told reporters today.

"This innovation research center is already being formed," he said. "A staff of specialists has been approved. At present, the development of a personnel concept is at the final stage."

"We have created the backbone of specialists and several laboratories that deal with our subject matter," continued the colonel general. "In the future, such laboratories will be created depending on scientific tasks and topics related to different types and types of troops."

Ostapenko specified that "the purpose of the scientific center is the scientific and technical support for the development of the Armed Forces."

Referring to the features of the design offices of the Center for Robotics, he pointed out several stages of their activities, including scientific study of the issue, scientific support of the created sample of weapons and military equipment, its transfer to industry and troops for further implementation. “In this context, we have complete mutual understanding with research institutes and enterprises of the military-industrial complex,” Ostapenko assured. At the same time, he stressed that enterprises and institutions working in the innovation sphere in the interests of the Ministry of Defense "will be financed taking into account the tasks that they have identified." "We are capable of solving the tasks for 2020-2025 years that are set for us in terms of providing our troops with robotics," the general said.

"In the 2020 year, the Americans are planning to bring the equipping of their troops with robots - percussion, reconnaissance, security - up to 30 percent," said Ostapenko. "We have a much smaller figure. But one that has all the possibilities for implementation."

    Here and direct the near-scientific companies and see what they can do.

      The research institutes should do this, well, what can they do in a year, eat a maximum of alcohol from devices

        It is these research institutes that, in essence, are ready-made centers of robotics. And they create a SPECIAL center for some reason (it is easy to guess why). Invent a bike pancake.
        Nanotechnology first ...
        Skolkovo ...
        Hypersound ...
        Drones ...
        Mantras are changing. I do not see progress.

      stupidly - and scientific companies are not guilty if a young scientist is needed - take him by the scruff of his neck, identify him at the right research institute and let him serve - and so complete nonsense and profanation

    Well, isn't it nonsense? The staff has already been approved, and the concept of personnel is being developed ... And for sure - the money is already "sawing".

    Well, finally we’ve turned on the thought. All over the world robots have been doing the most dangerous work for a long time. And we are all in the tail. And for drones, and for scouts, and for sappers, etc.
    In a modern army, a soldier simply cannot fight without the help of robots. Decision making speed and attack speed are too high.
    And so far we have only understood this in aviation. The news is wonderful.

      I remember recently there was an accident at Fokushima, so the most interesting thing is that people eliminated the accident, not cars, although Japan was the first in robotics ...

    The goal is scientific and technical support for the development of the Armed Forces, isn't it nonsense? Again, someone's sons needed warm places to distribute military orders and "cut" the allocated funds.

    No need to jerk success in equipping troops with robots.

      Domestic robots are the most robotic robots in the world!

    Urgently catch up and overtake! There are Kulibins in Russia, you just need to search ..

      The Kulibins must now be interested. For an idea, they’d better go to work with a private trader.

    For some reason, more questions arise than answers on the topic, in particular:

    “We have created a core of specialists and several laboratories that deal with our subject,” the colonel general continued.
    In the USSR (and with what else to compare, not with America ... laughing ) the system was detached from the customer (military), through research institutes, laboratories, production, back to the ground (that is, to the troops).
    In the country of victorious wild capitalism, where the military has a problem to land on an airfield located on its territory, how will the issues of preparing TK, copyright protection, transfer to production (cost / profit), etc. be addressed. Do not forget the interests of many intermediaries :)))) This is modestly omitted repeat
    Conclusion: in the absence of the SYSTEM and the responsibility of the performers, little can change in the current situation of designing and manufacturing new types of weapons and dual-use equipment.

    It is high time! But I completely agree with the previous post - you need to knock out the teeth of wild capitalism and bring one axiom into the law - the army and the defense industry have the highest priority regardless of the form of ownership!

      and this is not "wild capitalism" ... this is a "special path of development of Russia" ... and its "teeth" (and at the same time, the entire "digestive tract" wink ) are heavily guarded by all power structures ... both parliamentary and government-presidential ... repeat

    It is unlikely that they will soon appear in large numbers.
    And it will be like in World War 1: take care of the horses, and the lads will give birth to the lads!

    The question arises - why the heck is a goat button accordion? There is such an institution - Central Research Institute of Robotics and Technical Cybernetics. Located in St. Petersburg.
    Founded in the late 60's. Professionals work there. In that shed, which is created under the wing of Moscow Region, dubious deeds will again be happening.
    In my opinion, both scientific companies and these "scientific centers" are a complete profanation and a waste of money. But the President can always cheerfully report that we have invented the bicycle. negative
