The Panel finds that the steady-state/advanced-to-kamak mission is a critical element in the U.S. fusion strategy as established by FPAC. An attractive SS/AT device can be constructed for about the $400M FY'92 guideline proposed by the SEAB-TF. The design and construction of such a facility should proceed on a schedule to enter operation in 1990-00. Adequate funding for peak construction years should become available following the D-T operation of TFTR. In all its phases, the new device should be managed as a national facility.
