US media said that Russian”machine soldier” tanks are not reliable, and Russia is training them to understand human language

According to a report by the American Forbes website on June 30, Russia is testing robot tanks, with an emphasis on understanding human language.

Russian scientists are”training” a robot tank to understand the verbal commands of human commanders.

The Kremlin Advanced Research Foundation (ARF, Russian counterpart of DARPA, the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) has begun testing artificial intelligence, a technology that enables”Marker” experimental ground combat vehicles to be issued to commanders Human soldiers respond to orders.

“Go forward! Stop! Fire ! Retreat!”

According to the original design,”Marker” follows the instructions issued by the operator by touching the tablet. ARF manager Oleg Martyanov told TASS:”Then when commanders give orders to subordinates and robots, we tried voice control technology. We are now developing it.”

After a long delay, Russia has finally made progress in developing advanced, combat-oriented aerial and ground robots. The Russian Air Force’s Hunter-B stealth drone made its first flight in August 2019. The Russian army deployed at least one Uran-9 ground armed robot to Syria in May 2018 to conduct combat tests.

But Uran-9 did not achieve the designer’s expected results. After only a month of fighting, the Kremlin admitted that the unmanned ground vehicle was not ready for regular front-line use. Senior researcher Andrei Anisimov said at a meeting at the Kuznetsov Naval Academy in St. Petersburg:”Modern Russian unmanned ground vehicles cannot perform the assigned Mission.” Analysts of British defense company BAE Systems describe the 12-ton, UGV equipped with a fast-fire gun and rockets Is”unreliable”.

According to BAE, in addition to not being able to handle”the tasks assigned in the classic combat type”, the radio-controlled Uran-9’s”thermal camera and electro-optical sensor cannot detect 1.25 miles.” Enemies outside.” The British company added:”Due to the lack of stability, the sensors and their guided weapons cannot be used when Uran-9 is operating,””There will be a great delay when issuing orders.” Uran-9 is also vulnerable to Radio interference, which may cause”communication/control loss”.

According to BAE, Uran-9 only has”limited autonomous functions”. This 12-ton unmanned reconnaissance vehicle”has found no ability to identify and attack enemy forces without human intervention.”

ARF’s work on Marker may help improve Front-line UGV (such as Uran-9) reliability and autonomous performance. The tank-sized Marker seems to borrow the chassis of the existing manned armored vehicle, so it may be smaller, simpler, and stronger than the custom-designed Uran-9.

Russia’s near-term goal is for robots to supplement rather than replace soldiers on the ground. Samuel Bendett, an analyst at the U.S. Naval Analysis Center and the New U.S. Security Center, said that”unmanned combat aircraft” will”play auxiliary functions in all the functions currently required, including combat, surveillance, Logistics, transportation personnel or other functions.”

ARF’s experiments on human-machine dialogue voice commands do not necessarily indicate the development level of Russian robot technology. The Kremlin may want its combat robots to have sufficient autonomy so that little human guidance is needed. Bendit said:”Marker” test is definitely not the final determinant of Russia’s current automated battle.
