The General Staff has identified 12 priority technological developments relevant to the forefront.

There are 7 innovative developments that are already operational or will soon strengthen Ukrainian troops on the frontline:

Ratel-S. This is a kamikaze robot designed to destroy enemy positions and armored vehicles. The main idea is that the drone is used as a mobile warhead carrying anti-tank mines or other explosive devices. Recently, this Ukrainian development has been put into serial production.

IronClad. This robotic platform helps the Defense Forces to storm enemy positions. The robot has armored protection against small arms fire, can reach speeds of up to 15 km/h, equipped with thermal and targeting cameras, and a combat turret Shablya M2. It has a long endurance: 13 hours in rough terrain, in difficult road and weather conditions, made possible by a hybrid power unit.

D-21-11. This is a stationary combat ground robotic module for quick deployment, allowing the operator to aim and deliver fire remotely from a protected position.

Volya-E. This is a robotic radio-controlled platform designed for logistical tasks of transporting various cargoes. Currently, the platform's readiness is at 90%. Several dozen units are already being tested in various units and are being adapted to the requirements of users.

FoxTac. Designed for evacuating wounded soldiers from the battlefield and unit positions to medical or stabilization points.

"Lizard". Ground drone-miner designed for remote mining of enemy positions.

Partner-VS. Universal tracked ground robot with high cross-country capability, high level of body protection due to the use of hardened steel 10 mm thick, payload capacity up to 300 kg, and the ability to drive by coordinates.
