Russian scientists and engineers are developing a wide variety of new robotic systems and space-age technology for the Navy, the Future Research Fund’s deputy director Igor Denisov told Sputnik.

“The Fund is conducting technical, IT, chemical, biological and medical and modern robotics research to develop new technology that will someday be put to use by the Northern Fleet,” Denisov said.

He added that this work was necessitated by the specifics of Russia’s Arctic regions and the challenges currently being faced by the Northern Fleet.

He also mentioned the work on a new outfit for Russian soldiers serving in the harsh conditions of the Arctic, as one of the FRF’s priority tasks.

“We are  working on a new generation of robotic, hydro-acoustic and sonar systems, advanced methods of locating undersea targets, self-contained power stations, and communications and navigation gear,” Igor Denisov continued.

As part of its medical and biological studies, the ARF is also developing a “microchip lab” to examine the health condition of submariners during long cruises.

“This technology will ensure quick and accurate medical diagnosis and will be easy to operate,” the ARF said in a statement.

The Future Research Fund is an advanced military research agency. Founded in 2012, the FRF is tasked with informing the country’s leadership on projects that can ensure Russian superiority in defense technology.

In late 2015 a robotics center was established as part of the FRF.

The Future Research Fund is currently working on more than 50 projects at Russia’s leading universities, research institutes and defense enterprises.
