A team at US ITER has been toughening up critical components of ITER’s vacuum system so they can withstand those harsh conditions.
Instrumentation & Controls
The US is responsible for providing instrumentation and controls (I&C) for the following seven US systems: Tokamak cooling water system, electron cyclotron transmission lines, ion cyclotron transmission lines, diagnostics, pellet injection, and vacuum auxiliary systems. The US does not provide I&C for magnet systems, the steady state electrical network, or for disruption mitigation.

The I&C team has completed a number of design achievements in preparation of First Plasma deliveries, including: Ion Cyclotron Heating (RF Bldg.) I&C First Plasma Final Design Review (December 2017), Tokamak Cooling Water System I&C First Plasma Final Design Review (November 2017), Vacuum Auxiliary System (03) Conceptual Design Review (July 2017) and Roughing Pumps System I&C Conceptual Design Review (April 2017).
