    A center for the development and production of military and law enforcement robots has been planned for construction in Moscow.

    “The research center will comprise of the Techno Park, engineering teams and industrial equipment. The idea is that the teams which are engaged in designing and building robots can go on to this platform and create the first prototype without having means to do that,” the Chairman of the Union of Young Engineers of Russia Evgeny Miroshnichenko said, website M24.ru reported.

    The Engineering Center will begin work in February-March 2016 and it will be created together with the Voluntary Society for Assistance to Army, Air Force and Navy. The engineering department will have a whole building designated for their work.

    Miroshnichenko said that there are already several projects underway that deserve attention — the first pre-production samples of these projects can emerge by Autumn 2016. “We have a team from St. Petersburg; the guys are building deep-water submersibles. Now they are engaged in the development of deep-water robot scout which can search for sunken ships and perform research activities,” the chairman elaborated.

    Another reported project is planned to develop a comprehensive system to intercept and destroy ultralight drones.

    Earlier, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree for the establishment of the National Center for Robotics.
