    This paper summarizes the progress of R&D activities related to the design of in-vessel magnetic sensorsfor measurement of the equilibrium field in ITER and the associated mechanical support and connectionsystem. The background to the design activities, developed in the last few years in the framework ofseveral collaborations, is provided in the introduction. The paper focuses on the experimental resultsobtained from a set of sensor prototypes, recently manufactured and tested, and on numerical simulationsperformed in order to verify the compliance of the sensors with ITER requirements. The paper finallyillustrates the status of the engineering analyses performed to progress the design of the support andconnection system, conceived to be replaceable by remote handling. In conclusion, specific issues whichrequire further developments to achieve the final design are outlined.
