World's longest periscope developed
Coimbatore: A 10-meter long periscope,
indigenously developed for a nuclear reactor at the Indira
Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (IGCAR) in Kalpakkam and
claimed to be the longest in the world, was dedicated to the
nation today.



The Rs 3.9-crore periscope, manufactured by city-based
Visual Education Aids (P) Ltd (VEA) in collaboration with
IGCAR and others, was handed over to Bharatiya Nabhikiya
Vidyut Nigam (Bhavini), Kalpakkam, by IGCAR Director S C
Chetal here.
The periscope is the longest in the world and would be
used in the Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor to view objects
inside the reactor during maintenance, Chetal said.




VEA Director J Balu said the periscope, to be taken to
Kalpakkam soon, can be remotely operated and also has
motorised facilities for scanning the area of interest and
image zooming and rotation.
The Applied Spectroscopy Division, Division of Remote
Handling and Robotics and Centre for Design and Manufacture of
Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) Mumbai were also involved
in the two-year long project, Balu said.
