How do you design control and monitoring systems for a new kind of fusion plant? You think you could maybe do it via Skype? What if you went out to see the plant a couple of times with a notebook and a digital SLR?
Let's get with the program here folks. Producing complex control and monitoring systems for a new kind of technology that no-one has ever studied before dictates that you have one in your possession. Not only have that but that you know EXACTLY how it works.
So for NI or any other company to achieve this they are going to need one and they are going to have to take it to bits, test it in every conceivable way and understand how it behaves. How can you safely monitor and control something that you don't fully understand?
Is there anyone left that still thinks you don't need to have one in your possession one to produce a control systems for it?
