JAERI is developing an Accelerator Driven System (ADS) for transmutation of nuclear waste such as minor actinide and long-lived fission product. To acquire the knowledge and the elemental technology that are necessary for the validation of engineering feasibility of ADS, JAERI has started a comprehensive research and development (R&D) program since 2002. The first stage of the program will be continued for three years. The program is conducted by JAERI with many institutes, universities and private companies. Items of R&D are concentrated on three technical areas peculiar to ADS: (1) a superconducting linear accelerator, (2) lead-bismuth eutectic as spallation target and core coolant, and (3) subcritical core design and physics. The outline and the preliminary results of the program are summarized in the present report.
