Development and future challenge for Advanced Solution Measurement and Monitoring System (ASMS)

Nakamura, Hironobu ; Mukai, Yasunobu ; Yoshimoto, Katsunobu; Tamura, Takayuki*; Iwamoto, Tomonori*

JNFL and JAEA are collaboratively developing an Advanced Solution Measurement and monitoring System (ASMS) that is direct Pu measurement NDA system in the large scale solution tank containing purified plutonium nitrate for the improvement of current safeguards subjects to be solved, and for next generation safeguards instrument (NGSI). In this report, we summarize the first step results of ASMS development regarding quantitative measurement methodology. In order to establish quantitative measurement, accurate MCNPX modeling and calculations are very important and necessary. After calibration exercise implementation, we successfully obtained calibration constants (slope), and the total measurement uncertainty was about 3% for $$^{240}$$Pu effective mass for 2 hours measurement except for the low level region. In addition, the image of safeguards by design and collaboration of SMMS are also presented.
