Paper Abstract

The need for suitable remote sensors in highly radioactive defense waste storage tanks is discussed. The harsh radiological and chemical tank environment precludes the use of standard sensors because of the need for intrinsically safe systems. Potential sensor systems based on fiber-optics technologies suitable for the nuclear waste environment are identified. The need for certification standards for this type of environment is also discussed.
