Ukraine plans to use robots in its ongoing conflict with Russia. The Ukrainian military is currently investing in a range of robots, including drones, unmanned ground vehicles, and other autonomous systems that can be used in combat.
- Ukraine’s military is investing in a range of robotic technologies, including drones and unmanned ground vehicles, as it prepares for a potential conflict with Russia.
- The Ukrainian military sees these robots as a critical component in their defense strategy, as they can be used to gather intelligence and conduct surveillance on enemy positions.
- Russia has already deployed robots in its military operations, including armed drones and autonomous ground vehicles.
- The use of robots in warfare is still a relatively new development, and there is much debate about the ethics and legality of using machines to kill humans.
- While the use of robots in warfare raises many ethical and legal questions, military leaders in Ukraine and Russia are moving forward with their plans to build up their robotic arsenals.
- It’s inevitable… machines will be fighting machines at some point…
The Phantom, developed by the Ukrainian defense contractor Ukroboronprom, can hit speeds of up to 37 mph and can go 81 miles on one engine charge. It even has a backup microwave-communication link which will work even if connection with its operator is hacked or jammed – a problem Ukrainian troops already encountered in their fight against Russian-backed troops.
These machines will be used to counter the Russian army, which has already deployed robots in its operations. While Ukraine’s robot army is still in the early stages of development, the country’s military leaders believe that this technology will be critical to their efforts to defend their territory.
