The experimental program for a proposed plasma facility, the ITER Divertor Experiment and Laboratory (IDEAL) is described. This device is to test ITER divertor concepts and prototype divertor modules in a rapid and accurate fashion. Goals of the program are to corroborate models of heat and helium exhaust and predictions of component lifetime. The program consists of a physics divertor concept development and testing phase (including an initial shakedown period), and a technology phase. By this program, candidate divertor modules would be exposed, in 3 years on IDEAL, to a plasma fluence in excess of that expected in ITER after 10 years of full-power operation.
