Title HiPER Targetry: Production and Strategy
Abstract The HiPER project is moving into an R&D phase with an increasingly clear vision of the stages required to demonstrate inertial fusion energy (IFE) as a power source. One of the major technical challenges will be to demonstrate the production and delivery to chamber of microtargets. The project baseline targets and Targetry-relevant system requirements are reviewed. An update is given of the current status of the HiPER Targetry workpackage summarising the coordinated range of progress which has been made within the project's Preparatory phase. A forward strategy is then presented in the context of the Targetry technology development plan. The full delivery plan is complex and only its essential structure will be presented in this paper focussing primarily on mass production issues and risk reduction. General technical issues of significance for Targetry are also discussed.
