ITER Storage and delivery system (SDS) is a complex assembly system. Lots of individual components including tens of storage beds, a few reactors, multiple transfer pumps, vessels, umpteen instruments & sensors which are interconnected with tubing and fittings in a confined glovebox system are to be installed in the given Tritium Plant area. The most important SDS getter bed will be utilized for absorbing and desorbing of hydrogen isotopes in accordance with the fusion fuel cycle scenario. This paper deals with R&D activities on SDS bed design, especially thermal hydraulic analysis in heat loss aspect, the real-time gas analysis in He-3 collection system, and introductory experimental plans using depleted uranium (DU) getter material for storage of hydrogen isotopes, especially of tritium.
