The robotic platform differs from its rivals by its system of control and video data transmission through an unmanned aerial vehicle at a distance of up to 60 km. Also, the mode of the automatic escort of the leader vehicle has been developed for the first time in the world. The platform is furnished with an electro-optical module, a gas analyzer, a dosimeter and combat systems or equipment for neutralizing munitions.
