NEST project dedicated to advanced remote technology and robotics for decommissioning
Joint project

This NEST project led by JAEA/CLADS will be dedicated to advanced remote technology for decommissioning under intense gamma-ray radiation environments (e.g robotics, virtual reality).

A short programme will consist of seminars, site tours, and practical exercise. This will be held at the JAEA Nahara Remote Technology Development Centre. NEST Fellows will be able use virtual reality to understand the circumstances inside a reactor building, virtual operations by simulated remotely operated robot. A longer program will include also R&D tasks.
