JAEA and NIMS has been collaborating in development of high performance Rapid-Heating-Quenching-Transformation (RHQT) Nb$$_{3}$$Al CIC conductor, aiming at the application of this conductor to DEMO plant. The technical issue of the RHQT Nb$$_{3}$$Al strand in the application to a fusion magnet is stabilization against perturbation. NIMS developed technique to attach copper stabilizer by using electroplating and a sub-scale CIC conductor is developed using this conductor. JAEA performed stability test of the developed CIC conductor to demonstrate efficiency of this copper stabilization technique. The measured stability margin is sufficiently high compared to the one of similar NbTi CIC conductor previously tested by the authors. Then, it can be concluded that the copper stabilizer works efficiently from view point of stability, resulting in solving the remained technical issues in the RHQT CIC conductor. Therefore, we can say that the RHQT Nb$$_{3}$$Al CIC conductor is the most promising candidate for application to magnet in DEMO plant.
