Russia is planning to deploy mobile security robots in 2014 to protect its strategic missile facilities, the nation's Defense Ministry said Wednesday.

“In March, the Russian Strategic Missile Forces (RVSN) began testing mobile robotic systems being developed to protect key RVSN installations,” according to spokesman Major Dmitry Andreyev.

Andreyev said the security bots will be deployed at five ballistic missile launch sites around Russia as part of an upgrade to the existing automated security systems.

The official said the robots will carry out reconnaissance and patrol missions, detect and destroy stationary or moving targets and provide fire support for security personnel at the guarded facilities.

Mobile robotic platforms play an increasingly important role in military and security applications, helping personnel to meet challenges posed by the growing threat of terrorist attacks or guerilla warfare.
