MOSCOW, March 25. /TASS/. Development of weapons on new physical principles should be included in the new 2018-2025 state program for armaments, Deputy Defense Minister Yuri Borisov said at a meeting with members of the Russian Academy of Sciences on Friday.
"The state program for armaments for 2018-2025 should incorporate achievements in developing weapons based on new physical principles, on discoveries made in the materials processing science, and on hypersonic and other technologies. They should be converted from experiments to practice," Borisov said.
He believes research institutions subordinate to the federal agency for scientific organizations FANO should be involved more widely in research into new generations of military and special equipment.
"We should arrange for interaction and for harnessing the Russian Academy of Sciences’ research potential to conduct cutting-edge research for the defense ministry," Borisov said.
Participants in the meeting said the ministry within the framework of the state defense contract for 2016 had already made plans for conducting research crucial to maintaining Russia’s military security.
Borisov declared the start of a new state program for armaments at the end of 2015.
