Abstract

• Project Objective: examine autonomous robotic fuel fabrication processes with regard to hot cell and equipment design, operations, and costs.

• Fabrication processes for different fuel types differ in terms of equipment types, throughput, and cost.

• Design options are restricted by the requirement to employ only radiation-hardened machinery and components

• Benefit to Department of Energy: decision support for the selection of the most suitable manufacturing process.
