Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA) is now executing "Fast Reactor Cycle Technology Development (FaCT)" project in cooperation with the Japanese electric utilities. In the FaCT project, both the conceptual design study for Japan Sodium-cooled Fast Reactor (JSFR) and the developments of innovative technologies to be adopted to JSFR are now implemented with paying attention to the consistency between the design and the innovative technologies. The current target is that the development will be accomplished around 2015, after that a licensing procedure for the demonstration JSFR will be launched. This paper describes design requirements, design characteristics of JSFR and evaluation on the performances for economic competitiveness. Furthermore, the current status of the key technology development for JSFR is briefly introduced.
