This report presents the results of a U.S. review of the 1996 Detailed Design Report (DDR) of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) project. It was prepared by a panel established by the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE) Fusion Energy Sciences Advisory Committee (FESAC) and was subsequently endorsed by FESAC and provided to the USDOE. Copies of the charge and transmittal letters are incorporated at the end of this paper. Also incorporated in this paper are the reports of several subpanels established to provide detailed review and recommendations on specific topics. The authors of those subpanel reports are acknowledged in the text. The ITER was subsequently reduced in size and scope; this review refers to the full-size ITER design as it was completed in 1996.
