    The first department of military robotics and the intelligent armament systems will be established in Russia’s Serpukhov Peter the Great Military Academy of the Strategic Missile Troops, Defense Ministry spokesman for the Russian Strategic Missile Troops (RVSN) Dmitry Andreyev said Monday.

    MOSCOW, August 11 (RIA Novosti) – The first department of military robotics and the intelligent armament systems will be established in Russia’s Serpukhov Peter the Great Military Academy of the Strategic Missile Troops, Defense Ministry spokesman for the Russian Strategic Missile Troops (RVSN) Dmitry Andreyev said Monday.

    “Due to the fact that the Russian Strategic Missile Troops pay a lot of attention to the questions of research of the robotics military capabilities, next year the Serpukhov’s branch of the Peter the Great Military Academy of the Strategic Missile Troops, will start preparing highly qualified specialists in the given field of study. In the future, the department for the ‘Systems of management for the robotics and the intelligent armament systems’ will be created. Currently, the main educational program for this specialty is being developed,” Maj. Andreyev said.

    According to Andreyev, the plans include the creation of a high-end research lab.

    As the academy will be the first in Russia to teach military robotics and intelligent armament systems, competition for a coveted place in the department is expected to exceed available places tenfold.

    Peter the Great Military Academy of the Strategic Missile Troops is a higher education establishment of the Russian Strategic Missile Troops and a major military and technical research center.
