KUBINKA /Moscow region/, August 26. /TASS/. Robotic surface-underwater vehicle of the far sea zone “Shadow” developed in Russia. As reported TASS in the Main research and testing robotics centre of the Ministry of defense of the Russian Federation, the layout of the generated trimaran was first presented at the international forum “Army-2017” in the suburbs.

According to the data presented at the booth of the Center for the study of the external appearance of the robot-trimaran, made all the necessary theoretical calculations for the substantiation of tactical-technical data of the future Maritime UAV. The task of this unit will be the monitoring of long sea zones and the collection of data on ecology and Hydrophysics of the ocean.

As told TASS the head of the Centre Sergei Popov, one of the key directions of the development of marine robotic systems are stealth and quiet . “Research in innovative areas given special attention. Latest technology implemented today, with the establishment of a Maritime robotic systems allow to create devices with fundamentally new design and unique properties,” – said the Agency interlocutor.

Total displacement of the “Shadow” can reach 140 tons. The feature of the device is that it can move along the surface of the water and dive to a small depth in the case of strong emotion. All surfaces the “Shadow” made by technology stealth, which makes the trimaran invisible.

It is expected that the autonomy of the “Shadow” will be up to 90 days and a cruising range will reach 13 thousand nautical miles. Trimaran in which you will apply the principle of propulsion, to be equipped with electrochemical batteries.
