Fusion nuclear technology (FNT) research in the United States encompasses many activities and requires expertise and
capabilities in many different disciplines. The US Enabling Technology program is divided into several task areas, with aspects
of magnet fusion energy (MFE) fusion nuclear technology being addressed mainly in the Plasma Chamber, Neutronics, Safety,
Materials, Tritium and Plasma Facing Component Programs. These various programs work together to address key FNT topics,
including support for the ITER basic machine and the ITER Test Blanket Module, support for domestic plasma experiments,
and development of DEMO relevant material and technological systems for blankets, shields, and plasma facing components. In
