ABU DHABI, February 20. /TASS/. Russia’s leading ammunition maker, Techmash, has plans to develop a new generation of remote-controlled ammunition for grenade launchers using artificial intelligence (AI), CEO Sergey Rusakov said.
"One of our main objectives is to improve ammunition. We are currently modernizing our grenade launchers and this involves, among other things, developing a new generation of supplies for close combat with remote-controlled detonation leveraging state-of-the-art electronics and artificial intelligence tools," the company chief said at the IDEX-2017 exhibition.
He also noted that Techmash was currently preparing for state testing by integrating the "smart ammunition" complex into the weapon stations of fighting armored vehicles.
"Given the amount of work the state tests require, this ammunition can’t be put into service earlier than 2018," Rusakov added.
