Abstract

This paper is part of the Remote Hnadling (RH) activities for the duture fusion reactor ITER.the aim of the R&D program performed under the European Fusion Development Agreement (EFDA) work program is to demonstrate the feasibility of close inspection tasks such as viewing or leak testing of the Divertor cassettes and the Vacuum Vessel (VV) first wall of ITER.
It is assumed that a long reach, limited playload carrier penetrates the ITER chamber through the openings evenly distributed around the machine such as In-Vessel Viewing Systems (IVVS) access or through upper port plugs.
