Abstract—In this work we introduce the concept of expendable robot teaming and its relevance in domain applications where the magnitude of hazards and risks reach the point that human exposure represents either a direct threat to life or long-term health consequences. We also introduce the main rationale behind this alternative approach to multiple robot deployment in extreme environments with particular attention to nuclear waste management and decommissioning. Finally, we briefly discuss related research challenges and directions.
