AB  - The first section of the European Spallation Source (ESS) to receive high-energy protons when live operation begins will be the Tuning Dump beam-line. The dump line will be used during accelerator commissioning to tune the linac, and must accept the full range of ESS energies up to 2 GeV, from 5┬Ás probe pulse to full 2.86ms pulse length, and beam sizes up to the 250 mm limit of the physical aperture, although the allowed pulse rate will be restricted by the thermal capacity of the dump. An imaging system has been developed to view remotely the transverse beam profile in the section immediately before the dump entrance, using insertable scintillator screens. This contribution presents the principal design parameters for this system, with particular reference to the techniques used in assessing the radiation and thermal environments and their impact on the selection of locations for the imaging cameras, and the specification of the mechanical screen actuators. The predicted optical performance of the system is also summarised.
