Technology Name: Remote Underwater Characterization System (RUCS)

Demonstration Name:Test reactor Area TRA-660 Canal | Demonstrated on: 8/25/1998
Demonstration Site: Idaho National Engineering And Environmental Lab

Demo Objective

-The major objectives were to evaluate the RUCS against the baseline technology in several areas including: -Cost effectiveness -Ability to provide a safer working environment -Enhanced capability -Limitations -To access the benefits that may be derived from using RUCS in a nuclear Facility to perform underwater visual and radiological characterization.

Demo Results

The RUCS is a mature technology that performed very well during the INEEL demonstration, and as a direct result, has since been deployed in various D&D operations. There are some very minor improvements that could be made to enhance its operation and effectiveness.
