Abstract [en]

There is significant potential for the use of unmanned remote control vehicles in sampling andmeasuring radiological events. No attempt to standardise sampling and measurement methods usingthese types of vehicles has been made so far. Common standards would simplify the use of remotecontrol vehicles in an emergency scenario and would thus be very valuable in critical infrastructureprotection. The main advantage of using unmanned systems in radiological events is the protection ofthe involved human personnel.This document focuses on possible scenarios for remote control radiation measurements and samplingusing unmanned systems. We identified scenarios that can be separated in two categories. First, thereare prevention scenarios where unmanned systems can be used to prevent incidents involvingradioactive material and deterrence. Second, there are response scenarios where unmanned systemscan be used to gather information after incidents with radioactive material have occurred. We furthercondensed three main tasks (spatial mapping, search of sources and sampling) for unmanned systemsin the identified scenarios.In addition, this report summarises possible standards for unmanned systems. A very widelyrecognised standard collection of software frameworks for robot software development is the robotoperating system. Further important standards concerning communication with robots and control ofunmanned systems are battle management language, interoperability profile and joint architecture forunmanned systems.
