The tokamak reactor concept using a very high aspect ratio configuration and the SiC/SiC composite is compatible with the DRastically Easy Maintenance (DREAM) approach. The reason for this is that the SiC/SiC composite is a low activation material and an insulation material, and the high aspect ratio configuration allows maintenance machines easy access to the reactor.
