The RAPTOR suite of codes combines real-time model-based predictions of the plasma state with the available diagnostic measurements. Following the work on TCV and ASDEX-Upgrade, this paper presents the implementation of the RAPTOR suite for JET. This suite embeds: the upgraded equilibrium reconstruction EQUINOX code, the new FLUXMAP algorithm, which maps the diagnostic measurements from geometric to normalized magnetic flux coordinates; the RABBIT code for the NBI reconstruction and eventually RAPTOR state observer, which combines the output from all these codes with the predictions of 1D control-oriented transport code. The suite is both implemented in MATLAB/Simulink® and it is being integrated in the C++ real-time MARTe2 framework. Thanks to its user-friendly interfaces, which are based on the MDSplus I/O and visualization tools, the RAPTOR suite can be used both offline, for a fast reconstruction of the plasma state, and in integrated control algorithms once it will be deployed in the JET real-time data network.
