MOSCOW, June 8. /TASS/. Russia’s Rubin Design Bureau is developing a preliminary design of unmanned submersibles to support construction and operation of drilling facilities in the Arctic Region, General Designer of Rubin Igor Vilnit told TASS on Wednesday.
These vehicles will be part of under-ice and subsea drilling system, Vilnit said.
"Subsea vehicles developed as part of the project are planned to perform exploration and survey work on the soil and in depth of the ocean as required during the drilling facility construction and will support safety during its operation," he added.
A subsea robotized system for security of the Arctic sea and offshore areas is under development in Russia, Vilnit said
"An integrated robotized system intended for security of lengthy sea areas and continental shelf areas is at the proactive development phase," Vilnit said.
Russia plans to tap Arctic fields using marine robots, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said earlier.
