ELEMENTS, created as a start-up in 2014, aims to propose its more than 20 years of experience in the space industry to its nuclear field customers.
ELEMENTS know-how is based on space exploration sub-systems. The above figures illustrate
the development of a Mars sample container (ESA program) by ELEMENTS mother companies.
ELEMENTS’ goal is to propose technological solutions to nuclear operators and primes, especially for dismantling and decomissionning activities.
In situations where irradiation levels do not allow human intervention (dismantling, decommissioning or post-accidental situations such as e.g. Fukushima), it is necessary to use robotic or remotely operated mobile systems.
ELEMENTS’ expertise is based on the skills of its founders and partners. Over the last decades, they have proved their capability to develop complex technological systems dedicated to harsh environments and particularly environments where radiation levels are an important constraint.
The first product developed by ELEMENTS is a radiation-hardened wireless communication system
that allows remote monitoring of fixed or mobile systems in nuclear facilities.
Conscious of the economic challenges, ELEMENTS’ vocation is to tailor its space domain approach to reflect the financial realities of the nuclear sector.
