    A new military robot created by Signal Research Institute in Kovrov, northeast of Moscow, can move wounded soldiers from the battlefield and even administer aid, the institute’s director Vladimir Shashok told RIA Novosti.

    “This lightly armored tracked robot that can be operated via remote control was designed to find wounded soldiers, move them out of harm’s way and even provide them with primary medical assistance,” Shashok said.

    “We already have a fully working model too,” he added.

    The Signal Research Institute is developing the most important and complex devices for the Russian military, such as systems of automatic fire control, target acquisition, homing and navigation.

    It is part of Rostec Corporation, which promotes the development, production and export of hi-tech industrial products for civil and defense sectors.

    It brings together 663 entities which form 13 holding companies.

    Russia is rolling out a wide array of innovative robotic machines to optimize the performance of its armed forces in 2016.

    In the next decade remote-controlled and robotic platforms will account for about 30 percent of the Russian combat power in addition to dozens of land- and sea-based robotic systems as well as hundreds of UAVs already used by the Russian military.

    Robotic scouts, sappers and firefighters were all part of a unique display of automated combat machines unveiled during last year’s Army-2015 military exhibition outside Moscow.
