NRC - IRAP projects, key to technology success
PICA (Russell NDE) would like to acknowledge the invaluable assistance that the Canadian National Research Centre and its Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP) have provided to the firm. As early as the late 1980’s Russell NDE Systems (then Russell Technologies) partnered with NRC to develop the key technologies that underlie the modern in-line inspection Tools that Russell now makes, and PICA now uses. This assistance has led to the completion of dozens of small to medium development projects with almost 100% success rate. Products such as the Radalarm, Radiation Dosemeter, Ferroscope, I-PIT, E-PIT, WellCAT, HydroScope and See Snake Tools would not have been possible without NRC’s participation.
