TRANSCOM is the Department of Energy (DOE) unclassified Tracking and Communication Web Application that is used to monitor the progress of "high visibility" shipments, such as spent nuclear fuel, high-level and Transuranic radioactive waste. Authorized TRANSCOM users, such as DOE shippers, carriers, state and local governments and various federal agencies, can access the web application from their PC or from any mobile device. Once logged on, TRANSCOM users will have access to shipment information such as positions, messages, mapping functions, routes and bill of lading data. TRANSCOM users will also have access to a 24/7 help desk (TRANSCOM Communication Center commonly referred to as ‘TCC’) where a technically trained system operator will provide support such as assistance in accessing the system, user training access, shipment schedules and system status information.
How TRANSCOM works
With a demonstrated 99.8% reliability TRANSCOM combines satellite and cellular communication technologies from onboard transponders to track truck and rail shipments as they make their way from origin to destination. Position and message information is relayed at near real time, making the data available to users at five (5) minute intervals, and when sent from the vehicle is within 100 feet of the actual location. The web application incorporates multiple layers of security including authentication by assigned user names and passwords, as well as role and privilege based access to shipment information. TRANSCOM has been used to monitor shipments since 1992 and since its deployment as a web application in 2001 TRANSCOM has tracked over 20,000 DOE high visibility shipments.
