AVEXIS

AVEXIS RESEARCH

AVEXIS is a small underwater vehicle that has been designed to survey and monitor challenging environments, particularly the legacy ponds and silos at Sellafield. There has been 3 phases of development to date, PhD research project, followed by a PDRA Hardware development focused on size reduction to enable access in to Sellafield Soils. The current development is now focused on the DAMSEL collaboration between UoM Robotics, NMRI of Japan and University of Lancaster. All in aid of getting the AVEXIS reconfigured to be deployed in Fukushima.
