  1. Project X: News, Status, PlansSteve HolmesProject X Working Group MeetingSeptember 30, 2010

  2. Outline Agenda 1. Developments since June – News/Configuration/Strategy 2. CD-0 Strategy Project X website: http://www.fnal.gov/pub/projectx/ PXWG Meeting, September 2010 - S. Holmes

  3. Since June Meeting • ICD-2 supplanted by the “Reference Design” • Includes pulsed linac for acceleration from 3-8 GeV • Have stopped talking publicly about phasing • Budgets • Expecting ~$750K carryover (out of $10.5M) into FY11 • Total FY11 budget = $9.7M (not including HINS) • Integration of PX, SRF, and HINS activities • In process for FY11 • Collaboration Meeting(s) • September 8-9 at Fermilab • Very (too) packed agenda; 120 registrants • Agree to go to semi-annual with 2.5 days, fewer parallel sessions • Next meeting at SNS in April 2011 PXWG Meeting, September 2010 - S. Holmes

  4. Since June Meeting Goal: define an initial experiment in each area Fall workshops • International Collaborators • Fermilab-India Collaboration Meeting October 25-30 (in India) • 12 participants from Fermilab • Draft Cooperative agreement with CERN on scrflinac technologies • Stuck with DOE lawyers • Initial discussions with ESS • DOE S&T Review (July) • “The Project X machine design is sufficiently well developed for the pre-CD0 stage.” • “The physics program for Project X is not well defined at this time. The scientific community should be engaged in defining the potential program.” • Physics/Experiments Task Forces established Neutrinos Kaons Muons Nuclear Physics Nuclear Energy PXWG Meeting, September 2010 - S. Holmes

  5. Since June Meeting • Functional Requirements Specification drafted • Retaining consistency with the Physics Task Forces • CD-0 • DOE has initiated work on CD-0 documentation • Shooting for complete documentation by 12/31/10. • (See below discussion) • Functional Requirements Specification drafted • Friday meeting available for collaborator participation via webex • Good participation: typically 6-9 collaborators, including India • Steve went ~full time on Project X in August • Stuart Henderson Associate Director for Accelerators effective 8/16 PXWG Meeting, September 2010 - S. Holmes

  6. Reference Design • 3 GeV, 1 mA, CW linac • Self-consistent concept for 3-8 GeV acceleration with pulsed linac • 2 mA× 2 msec× 6 pulses @10 Hz PXWG Meeting, September 2010 - S. Holmes

  7. Reference Design Provisional Siting PXWG Meeting, September 2010 - S. Holmes Page 7 Page 7

  8. Collaboration Status • Our mantra remains: “A national project with international participation; with Fermilab as the lead laboratory” • Collaboration (National) MOU for R&D phase: ANL ORNL/SNS BNL MSU Cornell TJNAF Fermilab SLAC LBNL ILC/ART • MOU/Addendum on development of high intensity proton sources in place with Indian Laboratories: BARC/Mumbai IUAC/Delhi RRCAT/Indore VECC/Kolkota • We have invited Old Dominion University to officially join the collaboration and sign the (National) MOU PXWG Meeting, September 2010 - S. Holmes

  9. CD-0 Strategy • DOE has informed us (last week): • They have initiated work on CD-0 documentation • They would like to have documentation completed by the end of the year • Cost range strategy: Following discussion with Mike P. I have formulated the following and sent to him comment: • Create base estimate comprising: • 3 GeV CW linac operating at 1 mA (3 MW) •  Beam transfer at 3 GeV through a 3-way splitting station • 3-8 GeV pulsed linac operating at a duty factor of up to 4% •  Modifications to the Recycler and Main Injector required to extract in excess of 2 MW into the LBNE beamline at energies between 60-120 GeV • The estimate will be done as if all work is being done at Fermilab (i.e. our labor rates) and will include overheads, escalation, and contingency. This estimate will define the upper end of the cost range. We expect to have this complete by mid-October. • Establish lower end of the cost range based on the following modifications to 1the base: • Replace the 3-8 GeV pulsed linac with a 3-8 GeV rapid cycling synchrotoron. • Lower the pulsed linac energy to 3-6 GeV, and inject directly into the Main Injector at 6 GeV, thereby removing the Recycler from the PX facility. • This option is dependent on two technical developments: • Method for injecting a long (up to 20 msec) linac pulse into the Main Injector, • Convincing ourselves that space-charge is controllable at 6 GeV in the Main Injector. • Benchmark • Linac estimates with respect to SNS • RCS with respect to Main Injector.

  10. CD-0 Strategy • Associated documentation • Functional Requirements Specification • Reference Design Report • RD&D Plan • Cost Estimate • RLS • Would like all this by October 31 • DOE Brieifing • Currently scheduled for November 17 • Primarily focus is on physics case • Reports from the Task forces • Summary of Reference Deisgn and Cost Range for the accelerator complex • Will suggest pre-meeting devoted to accelerator design and cost estimate PXWG Meeting, September 2010 - S. Holmes

  11. Longer Term Strategy • Start preparing for CD-0 • Establish management team/R2A2s • Establish WBS and task codes • Establish funding mechanism with collaborators • Finalize FRS • Execute R&D plan • Emphasis on srf development at all relevant frequencies • Consolidate Project X and SRF management • Engage of collaborators • Identify/engage stakeholders outside HEP • Establish the uprgrade route for a muon facility front end • Prepare for a 5-year construction period starting in 2015 PXWG Meeting, September 2010 - S. Holmes
