About the Competition

Today, underwater research is being conducted with various purposes such as protecting and studying natural resources in civil and military practices, ensuring the security of the country. A significant part of recent academic and industrial research has focused on the use of unmanned vehicles to reduce risking lives and to reduce costs in underwater or marine studies. 
In line with this need, our goal is that teams design vehicles will successfully accomplish the missions in the scenarios given to them.
We expect production and development of underwater vehicles which are operated by remote control and/or vehicles which can operate autonomously.
We want to lead development of original vehicles and bring the field to a wider audience across the country. 

The competition consists of Junior Category and Senior Categories.
