Nuclear waste monitoring 

The longevity of sensors is critical when monitoring in areas with problematic access, and especially those in harsh environments where battery replacement is not possible.

We have devised and successfully demonstrated a prototype sensor system for UK nuclear operator, Sellafield Ltd, to monitor containment canisters used for long-term storage.

The radiation tolerant system lasts 30 years on a single coin cell battery, recording the temperature and pressure of canisters and wirelessly relaying any changes to operators.

"The technology being developed by Sensor Driven really is game changing"
