TELEMAN programme: Second call for proposals; Open Day

The Commission makes a second call for proposals concerning the research and training programme on remote handling in hazardous or disordered nuclear environments: TELEMAN.

After the first call in 1989, sixteen contracts are in progress dealing with the development of tele-operator components and sub-systems and their environmental tolerance. The present call concerns integration and testing under realistic conditions of components and sub-systems fitted to existing research machines of the following types:

- improved, light, mobile machines for information collection, signal relay, provision of alternative viewpoints or manipulator support;
- robust, mobile machines for maintenance and replacement, post accident intervention and decommissioning (including gantry-mounted manipulators and tele-operated cranes);
- improved long-reach devices able to work through restricted apertures.
Proposals should include the workstation for the research machine.

A TELEMAN Open Day will be held in Brussels on 24 October 1991. This is intended to be an occasion when interested organizations can meet and discuss common interests with regard to participation in TELEMAN.
