Australia’s Commonwealth Scientific & Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) has developed a new technology that could play a key role in safeguarding used nuclear fuels. The prototype Robotized Cherenkov Viewing Device (RCVD) is a small robot. In tests it navigated a used fuel pond and provided inspectors with real time data that could be used for safeguards verification. “The test demonstrates that autonomous robots could soon assist with field measurement and analysis of spent nuclear fuel, providing greater protection for human workers,” said Technical Programme Manager, Rosie Attwell.
