"The project is developing very successfully. A number of field tests have been conducted, which confirm the effectiveness of the developed technologies. The project is expected to be completed in 2019," Garbuk said.
According to Garbuk, two technologies are being created within the framework of this project. The first one is aimed at detecting arms caches and terrorist shelters in photos taken by drones.
"The second technology is connected with tasks of a defensive nature — the automatic detection of aviation, naval equipment, land armament on images obtained from space," Garbuk added.
The FPI was founded in 2012 to boost research on and production of technology for the Russian military. The foundation is currently working on over 50 projects, labs for which have been set up at leading Russian universities and research institutes.
