National Robotics & Automation Group (NRAG)

Esteemed Manufacturing collaboration, to find innovative solutions to problems faced by Industry.

The National Robotics and Automation Group [NRAG] is a collaboration between South Western Sydney automation, robotics and technology companies, ANSTO and University of Wollongong, which is working with local and international partners to develop robotic and automation systems for industry.


Our key goal is to provide innovative technologies and solutions to problems faced by ANSTO but which also have global market appeal within the nuclear and radio-pharma industry.

The participants include Australis Engineering, Britton Maritime, Breseight Engineering, Yokogawa, ShireBiz, and Southern Strength.


The group has been meeting since May 2018 to determine projects in which they could collaborate with Industry. Recently, following a presentation from ANSTO staff, they have focussed on projects that could assist ANSTO in automating present and future facilities.


The current project includes the development of an imaging system to detect the rotation of high quality Silicon ingots in the bottom of the OPAL reactor Pool. Funding has been provided by ANSTO for a feasibility study.
