Robots Join Nuclear Sensor Lineup

by Casey Dickinson, Journal Staff

HORSEHEADS, New York — Robots will be the latest addition to Imaging and Sensing Technology, Inc.’s (IST) lineup of sensing and inspection equipment for the nuclear-power industry. IST has acquired the exclusive worldwide marketing and manufacturing rights for the Inuktun line of mobile robots used for nuclear inspection and repair.

British Columbia–based Inuktun Services, Ltd. manufactures camera-equipped robots that can operate underwater and in other hazardous conditions.

IST and Inuktun signed a five-year, renewable agreement for an undisclosed sum, says Donald Hartman, CEO of IST. The deal will help bring Inuktun’s robots to a wider audience in the nuclear-power industry through IST. The company’s products are known in North America, Hartman explains, but can benefit from IST’s worldwide market.
