“A state-of-the-art robotized guarding system for SMF stationary facilities has passed military tests in the Kozelsk Missile Formation in the Kaluga Region, south of Moscow,” the Defense Ministry reported.

The stationary sentry robot is remotely guided and controlled by the operator. Its hardware features an unparalleled capacity to fend off potential attacks on strategic military sites, and missile launch silos in particular.

The remotely-controlled robot is equipped with electro-optical and radar reconnaissance equipment. The new system can fire bullets and grenades in both automatic and semi-automatic mode to a maximum range of 400 m.

The Russian military noted that the system did well in defending the silo launch site at the testing range from simulated attacks by “saboteurs”.


The robotic system which has been tested and is now ready for action was engineered to make it ready for deployment in less than 30 seconds.
