Funded by the NDA and Innovate UK, in partnership with Sellafield Ltd, the aim of this £3m SBRI competition is to stimulate innovation and reduce the cost of nuclear decommissioning. Projects should produce a step change in the decommissioning or dismantling process and address the following objectives:
- minimise human intervention
- increase productivity
- optimise waste treatment, packing and routing
We are keen to see technology transfer from other sectors. In particular, we wish to exploit advances in robotics in combination with other innovative technologies. Examples of technologies that may work together include, but are not limited to:
- robotics and autonomous systems
- sensors and detectors
- artificial intelligence
- virtual reality
- digital and ICT
- big data
- modelling and simulation
