Search the D&D KM-IT
The hotline allows the decommissioning and dismantlement community to post problems
in a specific decommissioning and dismantlement (D&D) area and get solutions
from the subject matter specialists. Users can also search for previously published
problems and their solutions.
Technology provides information on decommissioning and dismantlement related technologies including robotics
and any associated demonstrations. It provides technology descriptions, benefits,
limitations, and associated links and documents. It also provides vendor information,
technology and demonstration fact sheet reports, and search capabilities.
The custom decommissioning and dismantlement web crawler searches and retrieve information
from decommissioning and dismantlement related websites. The crawler provides the
user with a listing of best-matching web pages, usually with a short summary containing
the document's title or parts of the text.
The mobile system component provides access to important D&D KM-IT features through wireless devices. The D&D community users can access the following modules from their mobile devices: vendor directory, specialist directory, hotline, technology information, picture library, lessons learned and best practices, and the fixative module.
Lessons learned provides a repository of documents published by the decommissioning
and dismantlement community users. This allows them to share their experience with
Best practices provides a repository of decommissioning and dismantlement best practices
documents that the user community can upload to the system.
The video/picture library allows community users to upload decommissioning and dismantlement
technology and demonstration videos and pictures to the decommissioning and dismantlement
KM-IT system. The videos and pictures could then be viewed by the decommissioning
and dismantlement community.
Weekly reports published by the ALARA center include the status of the decommissioning
and dismantlement activities that have taken place at various centers. It includes
the list of ALARA center activities for consecutive weeks. This feature makes the
reports available to the entire decommissioning and dismantlement user community.
The specialist directory provides a directory of decommissioning and dismantlement
experts in different areas along with their contact information. The user can search
the specialist directory by name or by area of interest.
Vendor management provides a directory of decommissioning and dismantlement vendors
along with their contact information.
Collaboration tools provides information-sharing mechanisms such as decommissioning
and dismantlement news, events calendars, links, message boards, and frequently
asked questions (FAQs). This allows the decommissioning and dismantlement community
to interact with fellow users.
The training component provides training videos related to decommissioning and dismantlement
work, ALARA Centers’ training material and custom training for the decommissioning
and dismantlement community.

The Bluefin-21 is a highly modular autonomous underwater vehicle able to carry multiple sensors and payloads at once. It boasts a high energy capacity that enables extended operations even at the greatest depths. The Bluefin-21 has immense capability but is also flexible enough to operate from various ships of opportunity worldwide.This is the UAV being used to search for the Malaysian Airliner in the Indian Ocean.The Bluefin 21 has a built-in safety feature which forces it to return to the surface once its limit is exceeded.

This unmanned submarine is to descend 14,800 feet to the ocean floor to try and locate the source of MH370 signals believed to come from the plane's black box.The vehicle design includes swappable payload sections and battery modules for in-field mission reconfiguration. Subsystems can be quickly accessed for rapid turnaround between missions and also allow for in-field maintenance, accelerating operational tempo.The Bluefin-21 uses an INS to provide the best possible navigation accuracy. Dead reckoning drift is typically less than 0.1% of distance traveled, yielding higher quality data. USBL aiding further improves navigation accuracy.Diameter: 21 in (53 cm)Length: 16.2 ft (493 cm)Weight (Dry): 1,650 lb (750 kg) Operational Experience:MH370: How the Bluefin-21 will search for wreckageSource: Bluefin 21 in Australia MH370 search link Underwater mission aborted early as search area proves too deep for submarine (15 Apr 2014). The first underwater attempt to locate wreckage from the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 has ended in disappointment after the search area proved too deep for the submersible Bluefin 21 vehicle. Just six hours into an initial planned 16-hour mission, the seabed dropped beyond the sub's maximum depth limit of 4,500 metres (15,000 feet). Source: Bluefin 21 Malaysia airline search link
