The TriTek Icarus is a hotcell-ready robotic vision system capable of 3D stereo viewing of highly radioactive elements. At the heart of this remote inspection system is a patented microscope head containing custom radiation-tolerant glass lenses. This optical configuration allows true 3D stereo vision, providing high resolution color images of areas from 32mm down to 1.4mm.

Positioning of the radioactive sample is accomplished through an radiation-hardened XY stepper motor stage. Optical components, cameras, and stepper motors are rated at 108 maximum radiation dosage. Optional components rated at 109 may be substituted to increase lifespan. All components can be encased in a stainless steel cover to shield them from particulate and corrosive contaminants.

True 3D viewing is accomplished with LCD shutter glasses coupled with standard LCD display technology, or optional flicker-free no-glasses-required technology. All robotic motion is controlled through a graphic user interface consisting of point-and-click buttons, slider bars, and menus.

Not only can the robot be operated remotely "over the wall" from outside the hot cell, but TriTek's proprietary remote control software allows inspectors to work from the comfort of their office. The live video data and control commands are transferred to and fro via LAN or even WAN. All remote access is secured by complex encryption algorithms.
