Latro is a robotic spider that can be used in the monitoring and decommissioning of both dry and wet nuclear storage facilities. The robot is designed to cut, sort and retrieve material from storage facilities. It employs six hydraulically actuated legs for motion and two arms for carrying large grippers and cutters (weighing up to 20 kg).
