A success oriented research and development plan for Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF) leading to a commercial demonstration reactor by the year 2010 has been generated. The R&D plan was developed by using the unique approach of combining an ICF-experienced project team with technical forecast information obtained through interviews with experts in ICF-relevant technologies. The technical forecast data were analyzed with a logic network formalism to determine preferred R&D options to reach the aggressive 2010 goal. The application of the developed technical forecasting techniques has proved to be a useful planning tool.
