    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The demonstration model of Russia’s humanoid robot FEDOR will be transferred to the Roscosmos state space corporation, which plans to send it into space on the new Federation spacecraft, Russia's Foundation for Advanced Research (FPI) said Wednesday.

    "The board of trustees decided to transfer scientific and technical products created within the framework of the fund's projects for their further use in the interests of the public. In accordance with this decision, the Roscosmos group will be given the demonstration sample of the FEDOR robotic complex," the FPI's statement reads.

    FEDOR (Final Experimental Demonstration Object Research) was developed as a robot lifeguard and is expected to fly into space in 2021.

    In addition, FPI will send a multirotor aircraft-based laboratory to the Era military innovation technopolis.
