Title: Remote Operated Vehicle with CO{sub 2} Blasting (ROVCO{sub 2}). Phase 1

This report documents the first phase of the Remote Operated Vehicle with CO{sub 2} Blasting (ROVCO{sub 2}) Program. The ROVCO{sub 2} Program`s goal is to develop and demonstrate a tool to improve the productivity of concrete floor decontamination. The first phase adapted and tested the critical subsystems: the CO{sub 2} blasting, the workhead manipulation, the controls, and the base vehicle. The testing documented the performance of the subsystems and preformed a concept demonstration of the integrated ROVCO{sub 2} system. This testing and demonstration verified that the ROVCO{sub 2} development exceeded it Phase 1 success criteria.
