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.
