Final inspection of the new ITER-like Ion Cyclotron Resonant Heating (ICRH) antenna was carried out in Italy on 23 May 2006. Following the inspection, the antenna was transported to JET where it will be commissioned on a testbed prior to its installation on JET at the end of this year.

The novel design of the antenna is expected to be resilient to fast varying loads due to Edge Localised Modes (ELMs) and deliver 8MW/m2 for 10s.
