After nearly a seven-year effort, Savannah River Tritium Enterprise (SRTE) operations formally adopted a new replacement for the system that tracks tritium reservoirs throughout their lifecycle. NNSA, SRTE and Savannah River National Laboratory all rely on the system’s data to manage reservoir processing, account for controlled material and maintain a reliable reservoir inventory.
The previous Automated Reservoir Management System (ARMS) was based on hardware and software architecture that were approaching obsolescence, prompting a multi-year project to implement its modernized replacement: ARMS II. Over the course of the project, SRTE performed three separate phases of software testing and obtained cooperation from across the NNSA Nuclear Security Enterprise to enable a four-week facility outage to complete the implementation.
