Abstract An integrated environmental and safety (E&S) systems module is being developed at the Berkeley Fusion Environmental and Safety Group with the objectives of providing overall E&S assessment and incorporating E&S characteristics into optimization in fusion reactor design studies. The module includes features such as modularization, quantification of figures-of-merit, and fast calculational schemes because of emphasis on compatibility with systems-level analyses. Initial results indicate the potential for trade-offs and optimizations involving E&S and reactor performance indices in moderately large design windows.
