The primary objectives are to determine if a prototype system meets the requirements to undertake a ECV exchange in a safe, controlled manner and in ‘no gas’ conditions on live gas supply.

The specific objectives are:
Development of a concept – TRL4
Selection of the most suitable enclosure – flexible vs rigid
Demonstration of the concept in a controlled environment
Review of E&R Procedures related specifically to ECV exchange 
Development timeline for TRL5 to TRL8
