Turkey is working to create combat robot units that will be able to perform tasks almost autonomously, only under general operator control. The Turkish newspaper Sabah reports.
Turkish defense companies Havelsan, Aselsan, Roketsan and others are involved in the development of the robot, which looks like a mini-tank.
It is expected that by the end of this year an “unmanned ground vehicle” will be tested, which will be able to work independently in conjunction with other similar vehicles. Previously, a sample of such a machine was demonstrated at Turkish training grounds.
And we are talking not only about ground forces, but also about aviation and fleet. The concept of the Turkish ‘Digital Troops’ assumes that they will operate according to the “swarm technology”, which is currently being tested on drones in many countries. It means that a large number of autonomous vehicles (each called a “digital warrior”) can disperse at any moment, and then come together again.
