Wireless in nuclear applications

What are the challenges and opportunities with using wireless technology in nuclear applications?

Energiforsk R&D program ENSRIC focused on safety related I&C in nuclear applications, is carrying out a mapping of how wireless technology can be used in the nuclear industry.

On March 8 a seminar was held to present the results of our study. We also invited speakers from power plants, vendors, consultants and research community. New opportunities and challenges that wireless technologies can bring to the nuclear industry were discussed.
