The Russian government is discussing a project to establish a new integrated structure that will develop and produce unmanned aircraft systems, a source in the country's defense industry told Interfax-AVN.

"If such initiatives are put into practice, this new structure, which can tentatively be called Bespilotprom, may appear on the basis of some corporation controlled by the state. It will include some state-owned industrial assets engaged in efforts to design and build advanced unmanned aircraft systems," he said.

The main goal of this organization will be to "ensure better coordination as part of Russian-funded projects to develop new unmanned systems," he added.
