DESIGN AND OPERATION OF THE JET ARTICULATED BOOM
After tritium introduction, planned for JET about 1991, remote handling maintenance will be vital to the continued operation of the machine. An articulated boom has been designed at JET as the sole support device for in-vessel transport of all equipment and servomanipulators and is part of the JET Remote Handling plan. The boom was manufactured by NEI Thompson of Wolverhampton and AET of Coventry, England, delivered to JET in October 1984 and has been commissioned successfully to its full design performance.
