  1. Innovation Developing new tools for the nuclear industry LaserSnake 2 Rob Buckingham 28 January 2014 Page 1 of not too many ©2014 OC Robotics®
  2. LaserSnake2 overview • £7.7m national program • Ambition: additional tools for reliable, routine decommissioning • Ex-situ size reduction of low active components using laser cutting at Windscale Lab on Sellafield site • Trace active deployment of LaserSnake for in-situ decommissioning on Sellafield site • Working towards high active decommissioning • Submerged snake-arm demonstration • Mobile vehicle demonstration Page 2 of not too many ©2014 OC Robotics®

  12. Innovating • It‟s hard! • „Why change?‟ – Doing nothing is easier than doing something!! • “Necessity is the mother of invention” – User pull and technology push – Politicians, regulators, industry, academia – aligning behind the industrial strategy Page 12 of not too many ©2014 OC Robotics®
  13. Robotics & Autonomous Systems The embodied internet
  14. Background Analysis • • • Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) is one of the Eight Great Technologies. RAS is a General Purpose Technology which impacts many UK sectors, including those with industry sector strategies: nuclear, aerospace, manufacturing and societal issues such as the aging population. The embodied internet – Interactive, interconnected, data-rich, smart tools that do work: • Where people should not work, and, • Working alongside people in human spaces and places • Recent estimates for global market size – EU Commission - €15.5 billion pa – UKTI - US$25 billion pa – McKinsey - by 2025 economic impact US$1.9 and $6.4 trillion
  15. RAS-Strategy Delivering innovation • • Building and industry Creating an innovation conveyor belt • • • • RAS-coordination – RAS-fellows; RAS-entrepreneurs RAS-challenges RAS-assets RAS-clusters • • Harsh environments – it‟s a hot spot NNL, CCFE, SL, EDF, Chevron, BP…
  16. Strategy for Growth RAS Assets • • • • • • • Building the RAS-UK balance sheet Tangible and intangible assets The identification, creation and use of RAS assets Using established UK infrastructure, e.g. an airport, a section of motorway, a ward of a hospital, a nuclear facility, a North Sea installation, a farm… First-of-kind UK-based real locations/facilities to accelerate technical maturity and explore societal acceptance including regulatory, certification and legal issues In nuclear, we support Sellafield‟s Active Demonstrator Program NNL and CCFE as locations to nucleate RAS-clusters, linking with world class universities and industry of all sizes
