MINSK, 16 October (BelTA) – The robot complex Vistl has been developed by the Belarusian company BSVT - New Technologies. It was demonstrated during the army parade in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 in May. The first field trial of the robot complex took place in a military exercise area in Belarus on 14-15 October, BelTA has learned.

Capabilities of the fire control system and other performance parameters of the unmanned vehicle were tested during the field trials.

The combat robot is a ground unmanned low-signature combat vehicle. It is equipped with a rotating platform and can fire a payload of 18 57mm missiles. The robot is designed to fire at enemy personnel, armored and unarmored targets while stationary.

Thanks to the optic-electronic module Grach and an AI-enabled data processing system the robot can detect targets up to 3,500m away. The robot calculates the firing elevation, the firing direction, and many other parameters on its own. The robot is highly maneuverable. Its off-road capabilities allow it to carry out missions in rugged terrain in any weather.

The robot is remotely controlled via a secure radio channel that uses a patented technology for counteracting radioelectronic warfare means.
