Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said that new Russia-made robot will be able to carry out spacewalk without a space suit and to conduct complex operations on board a spacecraft under control of a cosmonaut.

KLIMOVSK (Moscow Region) (Sputnik) — Russia is developing a remote controlled robot to carry out tasks at Russia's planned national space station, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said Saturday.

"A combat robot may be used not only on the battlefield but also in space. The work on the creation of a remote controlled robot that would be one of the crew members at the future Russian national orbital station, has been assigned," Rogozin said.

Such a robot will be able to carry out spacewalk without a space suit and to conduct complex operations on board a spacecraft under control of a cosmonaut, the deputy prime minister added.

Earlier in the day, the Russian scientists demonstrated two prototypes of anthropomorphic platforms for carrying out complicated tasks in copying, supervisory control and autonomous modes as well as for processing systems of dynamic equilibrium, dynamic step and complex coordination by an operator.

    I love the statement of "Future Russian National Orbital Station".

    Does this mean that they are going on their own ? I hope so
