The Rys (Lynx) robotic system is expected to be used as a reconnaissance device, a platform for the transportation of armaments and ammunition, as well as devices for the detection of minefields and even weapons. Additionally, the Rys will be capable of evacuating the dead and wounded from battlefields.
The robot will be able to move on challenging surfaces, including sand 10 centimeters deep, grass up to one meter high, snow and puddles 40 centimeters deep as well as on glaciers and mountainous terrain.
It is worth mentioning that creating biomorphic robots for military and civilian purposes is not uncommon among many countries, including Italy, where the octopus-like Poseidon robot was recently developed.
Earlier, the United States's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) reported the creation of a mule-like biomorphic robot.
