This report summarizes the work carried out for ITER task number N 23 TD 05, ID number D59. It describes a proposal for an In-Vessel Inspection System (IVIS) which can operate in the hostile ITER environment and can, in principle, make use of different viewing probes. The system is based on long rotating line scanning viewing probes, which provide a quasispherical field of view and high resolution picture of 480 million pixels completing the inspection in a few minutes, without the need for mechanical adjustments of the focus and the aperture of their lens optical systems. The illumination is provided by pulsed laser beams. The duplication of the optics in each probe has also been considered for tridimensional distance measurements.
