VEGA

VEGA

Tracked Ground ROV

Exploration Platform Capable of Mounting Sensors and Manipulators

The Vega robot is an ideal platform to perform essential radiation surveys in areas unsafe for humans. The Vega is a small, tracked ROV designed to be a low cost and modular solution to nuclear challenges.  This exploration platform can incorporate a range of sensors, cameras and a manipulator arm, offering full physical, chemical and radiological characterisation of unmapped spaces.


Notable Achievements and Demonstrations

  • White trails conducted for key stakeholders at The University of Bristol, School of Physics and at The University of Bristol’s Fenswood facility where the robot was demonstrated moving over and around obstacles, detecting the environment in addition to sealed sources.
  • Demonstration in March 2020 at Dounreay nuclear site, Scotland.

Collaborative white trial using sealed source at The University of Bristol, of the tethered Vega robot.
