PipeDream Galleries

Here are various galleries telling the story of the design, making, and deployment of DisCoBot and PipeDream. PipeDream was the original concept robot for quantifying the amount of uranium in the enrichment piping that operated by measuring the thickness of deposits. DisCoBot (Disk Collimated roBot) was another concept robot conceived to perform this function.

Both robots were successfully deployed in Hot Testing as shown in the gallery above, and their respective benefits were assessed and the concepts used in DisCoBot were chosen to be iterated in a production robot that is now RadPiper which is deployed at the Portsmouth facility.
