We have constructed a compact accelerator-based neutron facility at the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan aiming at development of structural materials of transportation vehicles for weight reduction. The facility consists of electron linear accelerator, neutron source, and a neutron beamline with a measurement hutch. Currently we are commissioning the accelerator and expecting a first neutron beam in 2019.
