    Southern Research receives a $2.8M grant for nuclear project

    Southern Research has been awarded a $2.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to develop smart maintenance robots that will work autonomously in nuclear reactors.  The grant came from the DOE's Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy. The project will use artificial intelligence and machine learning to train the robots to complete maintenance tasks at a future molten salt reactor facility.  “The MSR technology is very promising because of its inherent safety, but the high-temperature, high-radiation environment makes it necessary to remotely maintain the reactor. Training robots to perform maintenance tasks is a key capability in the development of these reactors,” said Robert Amaro, a mechanical engineer and advanced manufacturing specialist at Southern Research’s Engineering division.
