"Deferred Pending Need" R&D Tasks

  • Heavy concrete/cermet demo cask
  • Dose calculation
    • Driver: use of DU metal counterweights in a forklift offers savings in warehouse cost
    • Multiple problems: DU metal is costly, dose to driver appears too high, control of large DU mass after use
  • Cylinder reuse: part of UDS scope, no R&D need
  • Long-term storage of DU
    • Not an issue under current disposition approach
    • May need some work later to ensure retrievability
  • Disposal of DU: Not yet an issue
