The exploitation of ITER tokamak will require diagnostics for machine protection, inputs to plasma control systems, evaluation and analysis of plasma parameters and performances. The equatorial visible/infrared wide angle viewing system and the radial neutron camera are the two main diagnostics of Procurement Package 11 (PP11), one of the diagnostic procurements under the responsibility of Europe, which also contains Equatorial Port Plug 1 and seven other diagnostics supplied by Europe or other ITER partners and integrated in the same Port Plug. Significant progress has recently been made in the development of the equatorial visible/infrared wide angle viewing system and the radial neutron camera. This paper gives an overview of the major technical achievements on these two diagnostics and points out the urgent needed R&D activities. © 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
