Implementing ITER-like targets as the  WEST divertor is the purpose of the project. The divertor is one of the key components of a tokamak: it is the divertor that receives most of the heat fluxes and particles coming from the central plasma.
The “Measurements and Control” project deals with machine operation, plasma control and operation and physics analysis.
The goal of the WEST Project (Tungsten (W) Environment (E) Steady-state (S) Tokamak (T)) is to transform Tore Supra into a test bench for ITER in order to minimize the risks involved in the operation of a divertor.
A large part of the IRFM team is involved in the WEST Project. Approximately 100 people are working full time on the project.     WEST Organization Chart.pdf
