Analysis and Measurement Services Corporation proposes a comprehensive effort to expand and commercialize previous research projects to provide passive, in-containment use of wireless technology at nuclear power plants. Specifically, the efforts of the Phase III project would focus on assembling a complete, commercial, wireless, on-line, data monitoring and analysis system that can be adapted for use in any pressurized water reactor (PWR) containment. The system would be used for condition monitoring during plant operation and/or outage time to provide additional measurements that may be needed by the maintenance crews, operations or plant management.
