The "CEA cryogenic target fabrication project" includes materials and technological researches on the Cryogenic Target Assembly (CTA), the DT filling and cryogenic transport to the LMJ site, and the conformation of the DT solid layer. The Research program to deliver CTAs to LMJ in 2010 is described. Some important experimental results have already been obtained and are presented.
