People at RACE

Dillon Morgan joined the graduate scheme at UKAEA in September 2018. He originally heard about UKAEA on the radio where the potential of fusion power was discussed. He did his MEng in Integrated Mechanical and Electrical Engineering in Bath. During that time he was already very intrigued with the work RACE was doing.

Dillon now works on a nuclear decommissioning-based project which involves several organisations who are collaborating to bring together a demonstration of what the future of nuclear decommissioning may look like. Nuvia, the project lead, have put together a task force of organisations which includes RACE. RACE has been tasked with delivering an integrated control package to serve as an upgrade to the M3000 telemanipulator which belongs to one of the other contracted organisations, PaR Systems. This involves work in many different areas such as electrical design, software development, machine control, VR integration, and end effector tooling design.

Dillon has led the design of the electrical system which will enable the control of the M3000 telemanipulator. He is currently moving over to his next project where he will design the electrical system to support a series of first-of-a-kind prototypes of technologies as part of the ITER Robotics Test Facility programme.
