    This report describes the work done under EFDA contract 06-1478 (EFDA Ref.: TW6-TPDS-DIASUP10). The main part of the work has been focused on: 1) An outline plan for the full development of the CTS diagnostic for ITER, including specifications for future design tasks on the system and R&D tasks on critical components. 2) An engineering design and test in a blanket mock-up of the frontend quasi-optical High Field Side (HFS) antenna system,. 3) Some considerations on the waveguide mounting. 4) Neutronics and thermo-elastic calculations on nuclear and radiative heating of the first mirror required to provide input to the engineering design. 5) An engineering design of the front-end quasi-optical components for the Low Field Side (LFS) system in the port plug. 6) A discussion on possible calibration methods.
