MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
A specialized fire department is located in the Azov region, which is the only one in the region to use robotic assistants to extinguish fires.
These seemingly small machines are capable of extinguishing a man-made fire. They perform maneuvers within a radius of 200 meters, and they are capable of supplying water for 40.
MUPR (mobile robotic fire-extinguishing installation) see a flame in a room within a radius of 50 meters, and lamps are able to illuminate the path even in the smoky space. A full charge allows you to work autonomously for 3 hours, supply fire extinguishing substances (water, foam, powder) to extinguish the fire. In addition, the robot system can operate in self-cooling mode.
These robotic systems have been repeatedly used in fires. In extinguishing, for example, a gas filling station in Rostov-na-Donu in 2015, also at a test site where ammunition detonated.
There are also drones in the special unit, which are always used in large fires and thanks to them you can get a complete picture of the incident.
For 7 years, the special unit in Kuleshovka has been maintaining the title of the best in the Southern Federal District. Teamwork – robot and human – is not new to rescuers. And often such an alliance is needed in an incident.
