Russian scientists have created a simulation system for the Armed forces of the Russian Federation, which allows, for example, to assess the effectiveness of domestic weapons in combat against a specific enemy, and presented it to President Vladimir Putin.

On Thursday, during a working visit to Sarov, the head of state inspected the Russian Federal nuclear center’s digital developments – the All-Russian research Institute of experimental physics (RFNC-ARRIEP). Vyacheslav Solovyov, scientific Director of the RFNC-ARRIEP, gave explanations to the head of state on defense digital products created with the Sarov nuclear center’s participation.

RFNC-ARRIEP is the leading organization for virtual simulation in the military-industrial complex. According to Solovyov, systems are being developed that “are based on artificial intelligence, on the capabilities of analyzing the processing of system data that the Ministry of Defense receives, including satellite images.” With such systems’ help, it is possible to recognize specific types of weapons, predict their actions, and Express Analytics, the scientist added.

“We propose a digital test site where you can check the characteristics of the created samples already in real, virtual combat operations, with an assessment of the effectiveness of both our means and those of the opposing side,” Solovyov said.

RFNC-ARRIEP (part of the nuclear weapons complex of the Rosatom State Corporation) is the largest Russian research center engaged in defense development, primarily in the field of nuclear weapons. The Institute made a decisive contribution to the creation of Soviet nuclear and thermonuclear weapons in the USSR and eliminating the US atomic monopoly. Earlier it was reported that the RFNC-ARRIEP participated in the creation of new types of Russian weapons.

Because the RFNC-ARRIEP has a very powerful mathematical base, digital technologies in demand in various industries are successfully developing here. Digital developments of the nuclear center include competitive IT solutions in such areas as high-tech modeling, research and development, enterprise and production management, creation of digital infrastructure, information and physical, digital security, design, and construction, digitalization of urban services and processes.
