Russia defense industry works on the design of the next generation of Nerekhta robotic system.
Russia’s Advanced Research Foundation is currently working on the design of the Nerekhta-2 robotic system, Foundation Deputy CEO Igor Denisov said. A self-contained grouping of ground-based robotic systems is expected to be made as part of the project, Denisov added.

"Of course, the Nerekhta-2 robotic system will move automatically in rough terrain, receive a new type of ammunition to deal with non-line-of-sight targets and will be able to hit heavier and better protected targets. Special attention will be paid to command and control," the deputy CEO said.

According to Denisov, efficient hybrid engines are being developed to allow robotic systems to perform long marches at high speeds.

Projects are being discussed to develop a self-sustained movement and fire control system.

"We have chosen the Nerekhta platform as it is the most suitable platform for modification. This is a laboratory that will be used to test advanced solutions for ground-based robotic systems designed for combat support, including in urban conditions," Denisov said.

"I think we will show new capabilities of the Nerekhta robotic system at a practice range at the end of the year. The robotic system will receive an aerial component and additional automation elements," he added.
