The head of the Kronstadt Naval Cadet Military Corps Nikolai Dovbeshko was awarded certificates for the transfer of educational and methodological complexes based on unmanned robotic platforms “Kadet-M” into trial operation.

The catamarans have been successfully tested in the open water of the Gulf of Finland. In essence, catamarans are mobile multipurpose robotic complexes (catamarans-laboratories), named “Cadet-M”. The educational and technological tasks for the catamaran were developed by the methodologists of the laboratories of innovative educational technologies and technical training aids of the Kronstadt Naval Cadet Military Corps, as well as by cadets and teachers of the “Engineers of the Future” circle. The creation of the catamarans hull was carried out in close cooperation with the Innovation Development Center of the Polytechnic University (St. Petersburg) and the United Shipbuilding Corporation, represented by the Sredne-Nevsky Shipbuilding Plant. Artificial intelligence has been implemented in the unmanned catamaran project.

The catamaran is intended for educational research purposes, conducting experiments and research in a sea voyage in different latitudes and conducting experiments and research of water areas.

The catamaran is modeled as an easy-to-assemble constructor – an aluminum frame with CFRP floats, weight about 100 kg; develops speed – 12 knots. Carries on board three removable modules with research equipment, including a module with a robotic arm-manipulator. Along with this, the catamaran is equipped with vision and navigation sensors. Currently, a radio-controlled unmanned ktamaran is being introduced into the educational process (special educational methods are being developed).

The introduction of this type of high-tech educational equipment into the education system of the Kronstadt Naval Military Corps can significantly increase the interest of cadets in studying subjects, both basic general education, and raise their technical skills and competence to a higher quality level.

The Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Nikolai Evmenov, instructed to analyze the experience of using radio-controlled catamarans in the educational process of naval educational institutions and widely use it in pre-university educational organizations of the Navy. The issue of creating a cadet fleet of marine unmanned aerial vehicles is being worked out within the framework of the naval IT technologies organized by the order of the Commander-in-Chief of the Navy on the basis of the Kronstadt Naval Cadet Military Corps.

Participating in the project: Kronstadt Naval Cadet Military Corps (idea); IC of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (development and saturation with high-tech equipment); United Shipbuilding Corporation JSC – Sredne-Nevsky shipyard (creation of composite hulls); Innovation Promotion Foundation; scientific and technical center “Hevel” (solar panels); JSC Itekma (provision of carbon fiber); NPK “Morsvyazavtomatika” (manufacturing of the catamaran frame).
