We develop a new Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck (BUU) transport code, named the DJBUU (DaeJeon Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck) code, which is applicable to the rare isotope collision experiments such as those at RAON. The main motivation for implementing this a new BUU model is to have complete control over the physics included in the model. In addition, modern coding practices can make algorithmic improvements easier to implement. In this short article, we introduce the main features of the DJBUU code and provide preliminary test results. We also discuss the possible applications of the DJBUU code at RAON.
