Wireless technologies have found their way into the existing fleet of nuclear reactors for equipment condition assessment, voice and data communication, and process monitoring. Power plants throughout the world are in various stages of this implementation. The goal of this panel is to provide a status of wireless technology deployment within the nuclear industry, discuss the existing and potential future applications for the technology, outline the obstacles to its implementation including methods for addressing these barriers, and provide insight into future research needs to expand the use of wireless technologies. Panelists from around the globe will provide a short presentation on their activities within this area followed by a moderated Q&A session.
