Not just a toy!

Drones are being used at Dounreay nuclear site, carrying out building inspection work, improving safety & saving money.

The technology sees a camera mounted on an unmanned aerial vehicle to carry out tasks that would otherwise have been done by workers on platforms.  The switch to using drones means around £100,000 worth of savings to the UK taxpayer, which can be used for other front-line decommissioning & hazard reduction work.
