ABU DHABI, February 21. /TASS/. The Roselectronics holding company (part of Rostec) is developing AI-operated decision-making systems to guard Russia’s land borders, head of Rostec Sergey Chemezov told TASS.

“The Rostec associated Roselectronics is in the process of creating decision-making intelligent systems for protecting Russia’s land borders,” he said.

He revealed that these systems collect ground, maritime and air data, estimate the situation in guarded zones and help to plan the functions of border control agencies and address operation tasks.

In March 2016, TASS reported that Rostec was working on an AI-operated system for guarding zones of critical importance. The system includes a group of air and ground robots, which can operate independently, constantly monitor large swathes of land, and promptly inform security agencies of any situation changes.

The system can unremittingly exercise control over territories of up to a few hundred hectares in distance. It can independently determine the coordinates of any perpetrator, identify and trace various objects, and send robots for detailed monitoring of a situation. In April 2016, it was reported that the system is being developed with the help of the Forpost all-round surveillance radiolocation system and the Polet-1 electro-optical module that can home in on a moving target as far as 20 km away. UAVs were also supposed to be included in the system.
