Title: Fermilab Proton Source Workshop Towards Defining a Proton Source Improvement Plan for the Early Twenty-Teens


1
Fermilab Proton Source Workshop Towards Defining
a Proton Source Improvement Plan for the Early
Twenty-Teens
  • December 7, 2010

2
  • Welcome to the 2010 Proton Source Workshop
  • This workshop will highlight the condition and
    performance of the Fermilab Linac and Booster
    with the intent of fostering open discussion on
    aspects that now seem relevant for these machines
    to serve the U.S. High Energy Physics program for
    the next decade or longer

3
Welcome
  • Preamble
  • Every proton for the entire US domestic
    experimental High Energy Physics program will be
    provided by the now 40-year-old Fermilab Linac
    and Booster accelerators until new machines
    become operational to replace them.
  • Proposed Fermilab Project X machines, the current
    leading replacement candidates, are anticipated
    for completion
  • No sooner than 2019 to serve certain demands for
    3 GeV and lower energy beams
  • No sooner than well into the next decade to serve
    any demand for higher energy beams.
  • The viability of the US domestic experimental
    High Energy Physics program for the next 15
    years depends critically on the performance of
    the Linac and Booster accelerators.

4
The Objective is a Plan
  • Fermilab has agreed to propose a plan to DOE by
    end of January 2011 for extending and improving
    the operation and the performance of the Linac
    and Booster that they might serve the anticipated
    demands until they are replaced
  • Roger Dixon has asked me to lead the effort to
    define this plan based on the recent Proton
    Source Task Force Report (Beams doc-3660)
  • That report provides an excellent review and
    prioritization of items deemed relevant to
    continued operation at the current proton flux
    and reliability and to increasing the Booster
    hardware rep rate to 15 Hz
  • That report does not address increased proton
    flux
  • The new plan needs to include issues relevant to
    both continued high machine availability and
    increased proton flux

5
How I Intend to Proceed
  • Today
  • We hear from Stuart the charge for this effort
    and the specific goals of the plan
  • We air the issues and ideas
  • Subsequently
  • My core team, including Pellico, McGinnis, and
    Lebedev, will, with Roger Dixons consensus,
    identify elements that the consolidation/improveme
    nt plan shall include
  • We will work with and request the respective
    technical experts to develop a technical approach
    and resource loaded schedule for each element
  • Elmie Peoples will supply the MS Project
    expertise and effort
  • The plan for each element will be integrated into
    a comprehensive plan for Roger, the Directorate,
    and DOE to review and chose to support (or not).
  • The plan shall be made available for additional
    public comment when the elements are identified,
    as technical approaches are discussed, and at the
    time of Rogers final review

6
My Expectations
  • I expect the plan to honestly say
  • Here is what we propose should be done when and
    why and at what cost to credibly meet the stated
    goals
  • I believe the most important aspects of defining
    a justifiable and executable plan are
  • To chose the elements correctly and carefully
  • To identify the manpower completely and the time
    accurately that are required to pull off each
    element

7
Workshop Protocol
  • Prepared presentations will be limited to ½ the
    scheduled time for each topic there will be time
    for useful discussions
  • Speakers please stick to this time limit and/or
    expect to be asked to wrap it up quickly
  • Participants except for questions of
    clarification from speaker, please hold comments
    and discussion until the end of the presentation
  • Each ½-day session will have
  • A chair to introduce speakers and keep time
  • A secretary to produce a written summary of
    important discussion points
  • Presentations are to be entered into Beams-DocDb
  • Dave McGinnis has volunteered to be Time
    Enforcer, Sergeant-at Arms, and Bouncer

Not the Fermilab Linac and Booster
This Workshop was initiated by B. Pellico, D.
McGinnis, V. Lebedev, and myself as a step
toward scoping and developing the Proton
Improvement Plan (recognizing that, in January,
it might, for the larger questions, only
contain plans for defining a plan)
