In particular, at the Army-2022 forum, the Rubin Central Design Bureau presented the latest Surrogate-V underwater drone (Surrogate-W, Wingman), which allows you to simulate the actions of a submarine.

Last year, we showed the first models of Amulet-type underwater drones. Now we have a dozen different projects in development, we are working together with the Ministry of Defense. Rubin has the competence to create a wide range of underwater unmanned vehicles, from small to large. We can say that underwater technology is our forte.
