To safely and reliably extract the high energy FCC-hh beam is a challenge for the extraction and dilution kicker system and has a major impact on the design. A high segmentation is proposed for both the extraction and the dilution kicker magnets to reduce the impact of one erratic module and to enable operation with less than nominal kick strength. The main challenge for the extraction kicker systems is the required fast risetime of 1us. In addition, the dilution system needs to operate at 50kHz to provide the required dilution pattern on the beam dump. Implications, technological challenges and first proposals for the hardware solutions will be presented in this talk.
