High definition cameras resistant to high levels of radiations are aimed at nuclear sector operations exposed to such levels.
There is a requirement for cameras to be able to detect small size phenomena while exposed to high levels of radiation. Electronic systems do not resist such levels. The challenge is to design the electronics of the camera in order to be resistant to radiation.
The ability to design high definition radiation resistant video cameras is thanks to the know-how and experience from various sources. The HD camera proposed for development allows for the detection of micro-cracks down to 0.1mm. Simultaneous use of high zoom (optical and digital) combined with wide angle optics allows for the continuous visual inspection of the global and detailed view, avoiding costly downtime.
Increased safety through an automated and increased control of operations. - Better characterisation of the operated objects (fuel assembly…). - Economical performance of operations: no costly downtime of operations, reduction of human intervention. -
