A robotic reconnaissance complex has been created in Russia. It should monitor the state borders and coastal areas.
According to a source in the Russian defence-industrial complex, the sea-based robotic border guard will be able to operate for some days more than 100km off the coast. It will also be capable of being in contact with coastal stations, ships and submarines.
The complex is equipped with state-of-the-art means of communication and radars. It can track targets by itself and transmit all the data on them.
The underwater unmanned submarine was developed at the Institute of Sea Technologies Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences' Far Eastern Department.
