The Muon Accelerator Program (MAP) was created in 2010 to unify the DOE supported R&D in the U.S. aimed at developing the concepts and technologies required for Muon Colliders and Neutrino Factories. These muon based facilities have the potential to discover and explore new exciting fundamental physics, but will require the development of demanding technologies and innovative concepts. The MAP aspires to prove the feasibility of a Muon Collider within a few years, and to make significant contributions to the international effort devoted to developing Neutrino Factories. MAP was formally approved on March 18, 2011.
