RAM-DSM was the first RAM developed at Sandia for critical infrastructures. After completing the development and delivery of RAM-DSM, Bonneville Power Administration commissioned Sandia National Laboratories to develop the Risk Assessment Methodology for Transmissions (RAM-TSM) based on RAM-DSM. Protecting the electrical power generation, transmission, and delivery system from potential threats is an important responsibility for the nation. RAM-TSM is a risk assessment process designed to analyze the current security risks for electrical transmission systems and provide information to support effective risk reduction decisions. RAM-TSM is a way to systematically characterize and assess the security requirements of the nation's electrical transmission system facilities to deter, prevent, and mitigate malevolent attacks. The methodology and training has been made available to owners, operators, managers, and others responsible for transmitting electrical power.
