The trials will be focused on "exploring mobile and stationary robotic systems, including those that are responsible for the formulation of remote-controlled means of stealth technology and signaling," Andreyev said.

The testing is part of an initiative to deploy robots to protect the Defense Ministry's intercontinental ballistic missile launch sites by 2020, a plan announced by Andreyev last summer.

At that time, Andreyev described the robots as a "remote-controlled firing system" and said testing on the system would be completed by the end of 2014, Interfax reported.

The robots, which weigh 900 kilograms and wield a 12.7 mm machine gun, first underwent testing last April. They boast a speed of up to 45 kilometers per hour, can function for up to 10 hours at a time and remain operational in standby mode for up to one week, Vesti.ru reported at the time.

In December 2014, new russian unmanned ground combat vehicle was demonstrated for Vladimir Putin, when him took part in an expanded meeting of the Defence Ministry Board in Moscow. The unmanned ground vehicle is the land-based counterpart to unmanned aerial vehicles and remotely operated. In Russia unmanned robotics are being actively developed military use to perform a variety of dull, dirty, and dangerous activities.
