A Tokamak engineering test reactor (TETR) will be an important component of any national or international program to achieve viable Tokamak fusion power reactors. The functions of such an engineering reactor are to test blanket and shield designs, to perform materials and radiation damage studies, and to determine solutions to other major engineering problems such as remote handling, tritium extraction, and tritium leakage control. A reactor designed with these goals in mind need not, however, be a power reactor or produce a net electric power.
