April 9, 2011, Tokyo, Japan - A radio-controlled robot is deployed by U.S. Marines from the Chemical Biological Incident Response Force in a radioactive decontamination drill alongside members of Japan Self-Defense Forces at Yokota Air Base in Tokyo on Saturday, April 9, 2011. Based at the Indian Head Naval Surface Warfare Center in Maryland, CBIRF members are specially trained to counter the effects of chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosives. The US team will remain at the airbase until assistance is requested by Japan to battle problems at the troubled nuclear plant located some 200 km northeast of Tokyo, which has been spewing radiation since it was swamped by the tsunami on March 11.
