Radiation Resiliency of the Spot Robot Platform

Spot is often tasked with navigating hazardous environments, including facilities where ionizing radiation exposure or contamination are present.

In nuclear use cases, Spot can prevent maintenance shutdowns in generating plants and significantly reduce human dose during regular facility operations and surveys.

Since ionizing radiation gradually degrades semiconductor-based components, we tested how much radiation Spot can absorb while remaining functional.

Learn about recent radiation resiliency testing, including:

  • Testing parameters
  • Methodology and instrumentation
  • Test results
Spot can absorb 413 rem of gamma radiation without system failures. Spot absorbed the equivalent to over 82 years worth of annual worker does as limited by the USNRC.
