The NDA has published guidance on Technology Readiness Levels (TRLs), an approach to assessing technologies and their readiness for on-site deployment.
TRLs were originally developed by NASA as a method of measuring the maturity of space exploration technology. A variety of different industries, including nuclear decommissioning, now use the same approach.
The guidance aims to:
- improve the consistency of application of assessing technology readiness in the nuclear decommissioning sector
- increase the general awareness of the approach
