The US participation includes ~9% of construction cost and ~13% of operations cost in return for 100% of all ITER-developed scientific data and intellectual property, making the US ITER Project among the most highly leveraged in the DOE portfolio. For First Plasma, the US is delivering hardware for magnet systems, steady state electrical network, tokamak cooling water system, vacuum and roughing pump systems, plasma heating, pellet injection, and diagnostics. US First Plasma project (Subproject-1) was baselined (January 13, 2017) and is now more than half complete. Two US hardware subsystems are fully complete; four more subsystems are in fabrication, and the remainder are in prototyping and/or design.
