Characterization - Mobile Automated Characterized System (MACS)  The Mobile Automated Characterization System (MACS) was developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the Savannah River Technology Center for the U.S. Department of Energy?s Robotics Technology Program. It is a commercially available, battery-powered, autonomous robot base supplemented by a laser positioning system and a scintillation detector array. Here, two Health Physics technicians are performing a survey just prior to the unit being transferred offsite.

Characterization - Pipe Explorer System?  The Pipe Explorer System? was developed by Science & Engineering Associates, Inc. (SEA) as a method for transporting characterization tools into pipes and ducts. The Pipe Explorer? technology was demonstrated at the CP-5 Research Reactor. Here vendors are preparing the Pipe Explorer? membrane prior to characterizing buried pipes at the CP-5 facility.

Decontamination - Advanced Recyclable Media System (ARMS?)  The Advanced Recyclable Media System (ARMS?), provided by Surface Technology Systems, Inc., is an open blast technology which uses a soft recyclable medium consisting of a urethane foam matrix. Large debris (>1/4 inch) and small fines (<1/16 inch) are discarded as waste; the remaining media can be used for media remake or can be fed back into the feed unit of the system for recycling.

 Decontamination - MOOSEŽ  MOOSEŽ, Pentek, Inc.?s remotely operated scabbling technology, is designed to scarify large concrete floors and slabs. Here workers at the CP-5 Research Reactor are replacing the 23-gallon drum where dust and debris are captured by the two-stage positive filtration HEPA vacuum system.
