Default Short Wave, Long Wave = Confused? (what is "short way")

Hello, I need a little clarification / help please. I have heard the terms "short wave date" and "long wave date" (I think) - anyways, can someone please explain to me what these terms mean (mainly the wave part)?

It's shortway and long way. Shortway means their projected release date. Long way means their discharge date (end of sentence).

Richard's Wife is correct but not everyone has a short way date, which is to say that they are not eligible for Release to Mandatory Supervision. In those cases the persons initial Projected Release Date (the date that TDC estimates an eligible inmate could be release to RMS) is set to match their Maximum Sentence Date.
