5.3. Diagnostic Instrument Manipulator

Diagnostic Instrument Manipulator

A Diagnostic Instrument Manipulator (DIM) is provided on a few port locations for inserting diagnostics to diagnose a target experiment on NIF. The DIM is a two-stage telescoping system that provides for positioning of the diagnostic package and enables exchange of diagnostics for different experiments. For more information on DIM and designing diagnostics for DIM, see Section 6.3.
