==============================
Requesting Information of Robotics for Nuclear Decommissioning
==============================
IEEE TC for Robotics and Automation for Nuclear Facilities would like to distribute the following announcement and request supports from the robotics community worldwide.

By the initiative of Agency for Natural Resources and Energy of Japan the following announcement was made by Mitsubishi Research Institute, Inc., a consulting firm entrusted by the agency.

The specific requests of this call are robotics technologies to move and investigate inside the nuclear reactor building, namely,

1) a flight technology to enable access to the top floor of the nuclear reactor building and

2) a technology to move around and conduct investigations under water in a flooded reactor building.

See the following information for more details.
