The system is on display at a robotic technology exhibition which opened at Patriot Park outside Moscow on February 10. The exhibition is being held within the framework of Robot Automation, a military technology conference being hosted by the Russian Armed Forces.
Khozin said that the Vega concern presented "an upgraded hardware-software system for controlling a group of UAVs and ground robotic systems [mounted] on a KAMAZ-43116 chassis."
"The system, which has controls for UAVs and robots, is equipped with five workstations for operators. It includes a supercomputer which allows the operators to run up to ten UAVs and ground-based robotic systems at once," Khozin said.
Meanwhile, Sergei Popov, head of the Russian Defense Ministry's scientific research and robotics center, has said that the ministry has been increasingly using robots for a variety of tasks, from looking for illegal armed groups to mine sweeping.
He added that "since 2011, the number of unmanned aerial vehicles deployed by the Russian Defense Ministry has risen ninefold, the use of ground robots has tripled and the use of underwater robots has increased four times."
