Kraken's Trap received first place at the All-Russian Underwater Robotics MATEROV Competition in the Explorer class, which took place on 7-8 May 2021 in Vladivostok. 

The team consists of first-year and second-year students of the Institute of Informatics and Telecommunications and the Institute of Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics of the University of Reshetev.

Under the leadership of Polyakova A.S., the head of the student design bureau «Cognitive robotics» Institute of Informatics and Telecommunications, and Puryaev D.V., teacher of additional education head of robotics laboratory, the team was designed an underwater robot capable of performing many tasks has been assembled and programmed.

The robot has a unique construction, a rotatable chamber, and a minimum of hydrodynamic resistance. Most of the parts were produced independently, using a 3D printer and a CNC milling machine.
The technical documentation submitted by the TNPA team (a telecontrolled, uninhabited underwater vehicle) prepared by the team members for the competition was given the highest score by the panel of judges. Thanks to excellent performances at the practical stage of the championship, the team achieved high results, which allowed it to take first place, having behind its back high rankings and unquestionable leadership.
