MATTHEW NANCEKIEVILL BEng
Doctoral Research Student
Developing a miniature underwater ROV for deployment within a Primary Containment Vessel at the Fukishima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. The intent is to utilise a fast-neutron and gamma ray detector, alongside SLAM derived from mono-visual imaging, to evaluate the dose rate distribution and build up a map of submerged fuel debris. Radiation damage, hardening and survivability; Optics, SLAM and imaging
