  • Under the German Support Programme to the International Atomic Energy Agency the Multi-Camera Optical Surveillance (MOS) System was developed. It was agreed to perform a field test at the Siemens fuel fabrication plant in Hanau using a four-channel MOS System. The purpose of the field test was to establish the system's operational reliability under field conditions including the human error factor. Safeguards inspectors carried out on-site activities. Data were gathered from the system during regular visits made by Agency and Euratom representatives. The test results were used to improve and/or modify the MOS System where necessary to be incorporated intomore » the production model. The paper describes the field test, its results, and the conclusions drawn for safeguards implementation.« less
  • This paper presents an approach to the development of a system for the design, analysis and assessment of power protection schemes. The system aims to assist the protection experts in automating their work and aids them in diagnosing, planning and remembering. The system could also be used as a teaching or training tool for the inexperienced fresh graduates in the field. Protection for power system can be viewed as a sum of coordinated protective devices located in the various parts of a power system. The design of protection schemes depends on the configuration of the system, the specifications the systemmore » must meet and the constraints that must be satisfied. Selecting and setting the appropriate relays and protective devices are no easy tasks and require skill, experience, heuristics and common sense knowledge. This paper presents a generic architecture based on multi agent paradigm and introduces a novel approach in the development of an intelligent system. It uses distributed problem solving technique and integrates different reasoning methodologies such as case based, rule based and explanation based. The architecture of the system is based on an object oriented paradigm and utilizes a multi knowledge representation scheme in a case based framework. Part of the system which has been implemented in an object oriented environment shows a promising and convincing demonstration of the system`s architecture and approach.« less
  • The US Dept. of Energy has awarded grants to four universities (Univ. of Florida, Univ. of Michigan, Univ. of Tennessee, and the Univ. of Texas) to pursue research leading to the development and deployment of an advanced semiautonomous robotic system capable of (a) performing tasks that would be hazardous or not achievable for humans, (b) reducing greatly the occupational radiation exposure of plant personnel, and (c) increasing also the availability of the plant to be on line producing power. The four universities have decided to work as one team and this paper describes the approach and results to date ofmore » the Univ. of Florida's efforts to provide intelligence to the robotic system.« less
  • From late 1992 to mid 1993, Aquila and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) executed a Factory Support Program for the Modular Integrated Video System (MIVS). The goal of the program was to strengthen logistic support for the more than 200 MIVS deployed world-wide. In addition to accomplishing this goal, a completely unanticipated improvement in overall mission performance was also obtained. The benefit of the accumulated experience of IAEA field technicians and inspectors combined with that of product engineers from Aquila resulted in a mission effectiveness and efficiency that neither could produce alone. This paper describes the individual components ofmore » the MIVS Factory Support activities which, taken together, constitute an entire logistics support process. The MIVS factory support program is an example of the far-reaching benefits obtained by combining the resources of the system user with those of the system manufacturer to achieve the best possible mission effectiveness.« less
