Japan Automatic helicopter investigation into the Fukushima nuclear power plant

In particular, Chiba University Institute Professor Kenzo Nonami Japanese research team is now fully participating in a national project, a small unmanned helicopter survey by the Tokyo Electric Power Fukushima automatically fly to a predetermined destination of the first nuclear power plant reactor internals.

The Japanese government hopes to collect blocked by helicopter to a high intensity radiation and related garbage unable to grasp the field data, in order to advance the work of the reactor scrapped. Since January 26 helicopters in the field test.

METI in 2014 began to raise new technology can be investigated within the plant workers are difficult to access. Due to the need to conduct activities in ground mobile robots inaccessible heights, and ultimately adopted by the middle of the province have been successfully treated with pesticides professor UAV programs wild waves.

Total research and development of new unmanned helicopter propellers 6, is about one meter, capable of carrying a total of about six kilograms of equipment probes, dosimeters, air, dust collection devices.

Helicopter laser reflection principle calculation and walls, distance pipelines, can avoid obstacles automatically to a preset destination flight. Each charge can fly for about 15 minutes, in addition to devices prepared in advance by the plant also automatically replace the battery for a long time to complete the job.
