Remote Nuclear Monitoring


Maintenance and inspections for nuclear power plants are dangerous for humans to perform without shutting down the facilities. Our goal is to reduce the danger levels of inspecting nuclear power plants while achieving minimal downtime. This is accomplished by creating a product that can monitor nuclear facilities without shutting down the plant or putting humans in danger.


During standard operation, nuclear power plants go through wear and tear on the various machinery and infrastructure. With the aging of nuclear power plants, defections may become more common and maintenance may be required more frequently. In order to accomplish our goals, the device must be able to monitor a facility without exposing a human to extreme temperatures or radiation.
