A new pair of Russian robots has been developed that can track and attack humans from more than four miles away. The devices are designed for use on the Russian border and claim to accurately detect and attack ground and aerial threats long before they reach Russian soil.
Key technology at the robots’ disposal includes radar, HD and thermal video imaging, and multiple long-range grenade launchers. The first of the two new robots will act as a pair of scrupulous eyes for Russian border guards.
The ‘Flight’ robot is armed with an array of state-of-the-art surveillance tools to spot potential intruders, such as low-flying drones and other vehicles, from over six miles away. Russian engineers claim it could be used to pick out targets for long-range explosive weaponry. But the impressive device will mostly be used for general surveillance.
