The Transportation System of the Civilian Radioactive Waste Management System (CRWMS) is being developed using a system engineering approach to ensure it is properly integrated into the CRWMS. The Transportation Systems and its interfaces with the other system elements within the CRWMS are being developed, identified, and documented in requirements documents. The basic architecture of the Transportation System is divided into five segments. These segments are (1) Planning and Control, (2) Transportation Cask Systems, (3) Carriage Services Support, (4) Service and Maintenance Support, and (5) Field Operations.
