Description

Radioactive materials make up a significant part of the hazardous-material inventory of the Department of Energy. Much of the radioactive material will be inspected or handled by robotic systems that contain electronic circuits that may be damaged by gamma radiation and other particles emitted from radioactive material. This report examines several scenarios, the damage that may be inflicted, and methods that may be used to protect radiation-hardened robot control systems. Commercial sources of components and microcomputers that can withstand high radiation exposure are identified.
