JAEA has developed a TMS which can monitor the movement of nuclear material convoys to make safe and proper transport of nuclear materials. The TMS mainly consists of the location information monitoring system to monitor the location of the convoys and the visual information monitoring system to survey around the convoys. The TMS can send information in real-time to the TCC located at the shipper site. The JAEA has operated the TMS for ground transportation of MOX fuels since 2005, and the JAEA solved visual control problems that were observed during the operational experience and upgraded the system by adding the automatic communication control system, etc. In the case of emergency during transport, the TMS can send much more detailed visual information of the accident site to the TCC, which is useful for planning and executing an effective response. This paper reports the overview of the upgraded TMS and its effectiveness.
